Dad Thinks a Hard Days Work Is Pretty Punk Rock If You Ask Him "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

LAFAYETTE, La. Local husband and father Harold Walsner insisted this morning that putting in a full eight hours of work each day at the office is a pretty dang punk thing to do, an embarrassed source reports.

You know, I can be just as punk as my son Blake, Walsner, a senior sales associate at a local plumbing supply company, said. I cant think of anything more hardcore than running into the cubicle and slamming down the couple dozen accounting documents the boss was asking about. Its kind of like a mini-slam dance arena in there, if you really think about it just with more chairs and none of the music.

Walsner used the questionable analogy while attempting to relate to his teenage son outside of raging all day at the office Monday through Thursday, and Fridays until noon.


In addition to working for a living, Walsners additional savage interests include saving for retirement, keeping up on mortgage payments, and taking two light beers straight to the head every evening. Despite constant dismissals that his lifestyle sounds lame and seems boring as fuck, Walsner remained undeterred in his stance.

Im just trying to make him see that youve got to be hard to do what I do, Walsner said, slapping his bicep. Just last week, I switched car insurance companies, and improved our rate while also getting better coverage. Scene credit is fine, but you know whats really cool? A personal credit score of 700 or higher. Hell learn soon enough.

When reached for further comment, Walsner had reportedly retreated into his walk-in closet to pick out a radical sock-and-tie combination for casual Friday.

Heck, I just dont give a dang, he said, quietly sliding the closet door shut. Later, posers.

Darning Socks "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

When is the last time you fixed a hole in your sock? I remember learning to darn socks with Grandma and decided to re-learn the skill. Darning socks is easy if it is a small hole but one still needs to remember that this seam will be on the foot so if you make the seam to big it will be uncomfortable.

When darning socks, you will need a darning egg or something like it. If you dont have a darning egg, use a baseball or plastic Easter egg. I have read that people use lemons or tennis balls...

The Impossible Beauty of New Yorks 1980s Ballroom Scene "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Its not often that the gay community is gifted with a work of literature that doesnt feel like a regurgitation of known facts and exaggerations. Its certainly not that often that the work zeroes in on transgender and Latinx culture in New York with depth and sensitivity. Debut author Joseph Cassaras novel The House of Impossible Beauties interweaves the tale of the notorious House of Xtravaganza   among the most celebrated houses of New Yorks underground ballroom scene in the 1980s   with that of its co-founders, Venus and Angie Xtravaganza, countless other transgender individuals and drag queens who came and went, and the looming AIDS crisis.

Made famous by their role in Jennie Livingstons 1990 documentary of the scene, Paris Is Burning, Angie and Venus Xtravaganza arrived to New York City in their early teens. Both endured the hardship of walking the streets of 1980s New York, in and around Times Square or by the piers   the most reliable place to do business. Cassaras universe is rich in opulence and flamboyance: shirtless chulos in leather pants, feather headdresses, crystal-encrusted nipple tassels, a man dressed like an Egyptian pharaoh pushed up against the side wall getting a blow job from not one but two boys dressed like Cleopatra. [] A man in a neon-yellow thong walked over to Angel and grabbed her ass, smiled at her, and gave her a plastic cup filled with bubbling white wine and a strawberry slide that floated to the top. This was the time of Harlem ball culture, when New York was buzzing with drag queens competing in the famed walks that have become a sensation today, when a young RuPaul was making a splash in the clubs. The House of Xtravaganza was the only Latinx house in the community

The House of Impossible Beauties isnt strictly a work of nonfiction; it certainly is not a historical account of the era. Cassara fictionalizes Angie   renamed Angel and Venus to allow them to shine with all their might in his universe. The novel begins with Angel in the process of transitioning from identifying as male to female, and longing for a group of people who understand her. Cassara writes, All Angel wanted was someone to look up to. When she turned on her television, or went to the movies, or flipped the pages of a magazine, she never saw anyone that looked like who she was, who she had been, or who she wanted to be. This brings her to the famed drag queen Dorian (based on the drag performer and designer Dorian Corey). She then meets Hector, with whom she falls in love, and who eventually founds the House of Xtravaganza. As mother of the house,....

The Lies I Have Heard When Going Through Depression "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

by Ane Krstevska; The Open Mind

At the beginning of going through depression, I didnt even realize I was in one. I never self-harmed, and I never thought about suicide. I never even considered that I needed to see a professional or just talk to somebody. I didnt realize I was in depression because what I was going through didnt seem like anything they show on television.

I know some people that are going through depression and how they cant get out of the room for the entire day, but me I did everything I ever did, and I did it with all my heart. I wasnt feeling anything like that.

And that was the first thing that my depression lied to me about I was neglecting the fact that I am going through depression. It did it in a way that I woke up every morning doing my usual and routine activities, I went to work regularly, and I did that every following day. And the rest of the free time that I had, I would sleep it all off.

I thought that all the work Ive done exhausts me. I needed time to rest and recover but had no idea that my depression was the one guilty of it. I was ignoring and neglecting the fact that my depression was the one that made me tired and wanting to sleep all the time.

Later, I had confronted the second lie my depression told me. The one that I was in control and everything is OK when clearly it was not. I obsessed over my food intake making sure that everything I eat is the healthiest option. Or making sure I worked 8 hours a day, did yoga and some relaxation techniques. I did everything but didnt realize that going through depression is not all sadness and avoidance, but neglecting and controlling.

6 Home Remedies for Acid Reflux "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

by Dr. Edward F. Group; Wake Up World

Acid reflux is painful. Food and acid splash into the esophagus and cause belching, heartburn and, in some severe cases, chest pains. Some individuals have experienced pain so intense they thought they had a heart attack. If a person experiences acid reflux on a regular basis, the acids will irritate the esophagus, which may advance to scarring, ulceration, swelling, or hemorrhaging. What is the risk of acid reflux? Many experts agree, if acid reflux persists, it may lead to esophageal cancer.[1]

If you suffer from acid reflux, you need to take inventory of your life and determine whats causing or exacerbating the problem. Start off with a review of dietary habits. Foods that contain living enzymes are crucial in eliminating and preventing acid reflux.[2] There are other measures you can take here are six of them.

6 Natural Remedies for Balancing Acid Reflux

1. Balance Your Hydrochloric Acid Levels

Increasing natural production of hydrochloric acid in the stomach is the first step to preventing acid reflux. Replace cheap table salt with high-quality sea salt. I use and recommend Himalayan crystal salt because it contains chloride and dozens of trace minerals the body needs.

I also recommend taking a plant derived Betaine HCL supplement before meals.[3] This is extremely effective at preventing acid reflux.

A K-Pop Flash in the Darkness "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Always be with you you you you you you, sings Jonghyun over a shower of cascading synthesizer light beams. Surging to life with measured eagerness, Shinin finds the K-pop singer-songwriter in an uncommonly cheery mood, and it glows. Twisty, whooshy, dizzy electronic backing complements the elation of his vocals, and when the chorus suddenly blossoms and spills over the beat, , the reflective polish is blinding. Such ebullience!

Jonghyuns suicide in December hangs bleakly and inevitably over his second and final album, the posthumous Poet Artist, out since January. Its not a deliberately plotted goodbye like David Bowies Blackstar or Leonard Cohens You Want It Darker, though; its just the next album hed recorded. Although its sharper, sweeter, and more confident than his debut, She Is (2016), and the few other EPs and compilations that flesh out the rest of his discography, I hesitate to make grand claims for it or call it a major breakthrough his tragedy illuminated the longing and despair that were present in his music from the start. Nonetheless, the albums emotional urgency rivets.

Since first emerging as one of five boy idols in Shinee, among K-pops most sublimely streamlined and hooky groups, Jonghyun distinguished himself by composing music and lyrics for Shinee as well as his own solo work, and eventually for labelmates and other artists. He crafted a reputation as an auteur a performer so talented he was itching to write as well and he cultivated the concomitantly sensitive/introspective persona implied by the new albums title; in an industry where pop stars usually sing, dance, and wear whatever masterminds at the label hand them, elementary notions of creativity are potentially a meaningful alternative. Over time he was writing more and more, with his solo music getting tighter and tangier with each release. Poet Artist sounds like a culmination.

Poet Artists luscious electronic surface is immaculate 11 crisp, billowing exercises in synthesized, R&B-tinged popcraft rising from the hissing ether, delivering a few verses and choruses intertwined intimately around each other, and fading into the next one. Chilly glistening keyboards and echoey, rumbling drum machines integrate smoothly into an album that aims for mild sensuality whil...

The Islamic State group have formally requested a sample of the Novichok nerve agent used in the Sailsbury chemical attack to investigate whether the deadly poison was connected to them in any way.  However, the group has denied any knowledge of their involvement, insisting that their deadly poisons have all run out, though its possible there may be some knocking about round the back of the depot, and that they will get back to us if theres a match.  The group have also offered to return any material back to the UK as soon as possible.

A spokesman for the Islamist group said: I guess there could be some rogue element within the team who are up to no good, we just cant tell.  We will need a LOT of the agent to run a full set of tests, say, three or four villages worth.

Japanese Type 10 Light Grenade Projector (aka Knee Mortar) "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

The following video is brought to you courtesy of the Forgotten Weapons YouTube Channel. Click the video below to watch it now.

In the aftermath of World War One, the Japanese military saw the utility of infantry-portable light grenade launchers instead of rifle grenades, and adopted the Type 10 in 1921 (Taisho 10). It went into production in 1923 at the Tokyo Army Arsenal, although the great Tokyo earthquake led to production being moved to Nagoya, where about 11,000 were made between 1925 and 1937. The Type 10 was a remarkably light and handy weapon, weighing just 5.5lb (2.5kg) and disassembling into a transport configuration the size of a wine bottle.

The larger Type 89 grenade launcher was adopted in 1929, which led to the older Type 10s being relegated to use for illumination and signaling, which they did through the end of World War Two.

A Month Before A Heart Attack, Your Body Will Warn You With These 9 Signals "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

by Healthy & Tasty Recipes

Heart attack is one of the leading causes of death worldwide. It is a disease which develops gradually and most often has a fatal outcome. The main causes of heart attack are a poor diet rich in fats, smoking and a generally unhealthy lifestyle.

Luckily, all of these factors can be controlled, which means that the disease can be prevented. Preventing a heart attack is a much better option than trying to treat it later, which is why you need to learn the earliest signs of the disease.

Here are 9 symptoms of an impending heart attack which might occur up to a month before:


As we all know, fatigue is common after physical activity, but if it occurs suddenly and infrequently, it may be a sign of a possible heart attack in the near future. This symptom is more common in women than men and if it doesnt pass after a few days or a week at most, you should consult with a doctor.


Nausea, stomachache, bloating or stomach discomfort can all be signs of an impending heart attack. The symptom may come and go before the attack occurs and shouldnt be ignored.

Insomnia is one of the most common symptoms of an impending heart attack and occurs in women more than in men. It might be accompanied by forgetfulness and anxiety and manifests through the inability to fall asleep or waking up overnight and early in the morning.

The Amazing Legal Movement Giving Water a Voice "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

by Azriel ReShel; UPLIFT

Recognising the Rights of Our Waterways

The sacred prayers and wisdom of Indigenous peoples who have always known that how we decide to manage water will determine whether our future is peaceful or perilous, is finally being heard and acted upon as groups, under the guidance of Indigenous elders, seek to legally protect water across the planet.

Water has been abused for far too long, but now people are starting to treat water like the Indigenous custodians have for aeonsas a living being. Around the world, many people are standing up for the rights of bodies of water.

For 140 years, the Mori Whanganui iwi (tribe) negotiated for the Whanganui River to be recognised as their ancestor. Last year, in a world first, the New Zealand Parliament finally agreed that the Whanganui is a living entity. And just a week later, the Yamuna River and the Ganges were recognised by a high court in India as having legal rights, meaning the rivers have the same legal rights as any other human would have.

In Colombia, in another revolutionary ruling, the Constitutional Court of Colombia decided that the Atrato River is a living being, a legal entity with personhood rights. The ruling says that the Atrato River, which had been heavily polluted by gold mining and left with mercury contamination, is now to be restored to health.

An Interview with Lynne Tillman "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Lynne Tillman ( 2017 Craig Mod)

When you look at something like this, says Lynne Tillman, you think, how is this different from somebody elses photograph? Thats what I always try to clarify. Were at the Morgan Library looking at a picture of a cat. The picture was taken by Peter Hujar in 1957. Its the way hes making the cat central, in-focus and sharply defined, while everything around it is blurred. That strikes me as somewhat different. Hes not documenting a scene, she says.

Tillman has been looking at and writing about art for over thirty years. Im interested in how she does it: What does it take to look at an image and what does it mean to look?

Thats one of the reasons I wrote Men and Apparitions! she says. Men and Apparitions, out earlier this month from Soft Skull Press, is Tillmans first novel in twelve years. The book examines the roles of images in contemporary culture through its protagonist Ezekiel Stark. A thirty-eight year old cultural anthropologist and ethnographer, Stark is a wry and, at times, rambunctious guide through the Age of Images. In the patter of a Catskill comedian, he delivers commentary on males, mail, people and their pets, semiotics, spiritualism, and the Picture People, that 21st century tribe tethered to their phones or photo albums, hunting for evidence that they exist. We are the Picture People, claims Stark compulsive, anxious image-makers. Raised on images of the past, we possess historical awareness and self-consciousness of our role in the present, which activates or troubles the image.

Starks phrase brings to mind the Pictures Generation, a title that emerged in the late 1970s to refer to contemporary artists such as Sherry Levine, Richard Prince, Louise Lawler, and Cindy Sherman. These artists began to plunder mass media, appropriating images in diverse ways, and revealing the forms of identity and power encoded in our images. As photographys status as impartial witness or empirical proof was increasingly questioned by artists and art historians, it assumed a greater role as art.

Wandering through the exhibit, Peter Hujar: Speed of Life, in the Morgans first-floor gallery, Tillman spots the photographers range of references....

A complete introduction to Apollo, the GraphQL toolkit "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Introduction to Apollo

In the last few years, GraphQL has gotten hugely popular as an alternative approach to building an API over REST.

GraphQL is a great way to let the client decide which data they want to be transmitted over the network, rather than having the server send a fixed set of data.

Also, it allows you to specify nested resources, reducing the back and forth sometimes required when dealing with REST APIs.

Apollo is a team and community that builds on top of GraphQL, and provides different tools that help you build your projects.

Apollo Logo courtesy of

The tools provided by Apollo are mainly three: Client, ServerEngine.

Apollo Client helps you consume a GraphQL API, with support for the most popular frontend web technologies like React, Vue, Angular, Ember, and Meteor. It also supports native development on iOS and Android.

Apollo Server is the server part of GraphQL, which interfaces with your backend and sends responses back to the client requests.

Apollo Engine is a hosted infrastructure (SaaS) that serves as a middle man between the client and your server, providing caching, performance reporting, load measurement, error tracking, schema field usage statistics, historical stats and many more goodies. Its currently free up to 1 million requests per month, and its the only part of Apollo thats not open source and free. It provides funding for the open source part of the project.

Its worth noting that those three tools are not linked together in any way, and you can use just Apollo Client to interface with a 3rd part API, or serve an API using Apollo Server without having a client at all, for example.

Some benefits of using Apollo

Its all compatible with the GraphQL standard specification, so there is no proprietary or incompatible tech in Apollo.

But its very convenient to have all those tools together under a single roof as a complete suite for all your GraphQL-related needs.

Apollo strives to be easy to use and easy to contribute to.

Apollo Client and Apollo Server are all community projects, built by the community, for the community. Apollo is backed by the Meteor Development Group (the company behind Meteor), a very popular Jav...

Psychiatrist Dr. Niall McLaren writes to the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Psychiatrists (RANZCP) "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

March 23rd 2018


The President
109 Latrobe St
Melbourne  Vic 3000

Dear Dr Jenkyns

Re: Complaint re RANZCP Press Release. 

I refer to the press release by RANZCP responding to criticism of antidepressant drugs voiced by Prof. Peter Gotzsche of the Danish Cochrane Centre at recent seminars in Sydney and in New Zealand (06.03.18: RANZCP deeply concerned over stigmatising reporting of mental health treatments. Note that this has since been deleted). [MIA note: press release is provided after this letter]

There were five professional speakers at the Sydney conference and three who talked on their own experience of psychiatry. Four of us spoke to Powerpoint displays while, as is his wont, Prof. Gotzsche spoke extemporarily, relying on his unrivalled, encyclopaedic knowledge of the field of psychotropic drugs. While I did not go to NZ and therefore did not hear Prof. Mulders presentation, I am satisfied that each speaker I heard presented his or her material in a form and style appropriate to a scientific meeting. The standard of presentations was high and discussion was animated. In formulating its press release, I note that the College has not asked for any further details beyond those reported in the daily press in NZ (here and here).

I am very familiar with published work by Prof. Gotzsche and Mr Robert Whitaker, and with the current and historical claims made by mainstream psychiatry with respect to its forms of treatment (e.g. 08.03.18). I do not propose to enter the debate on the rights and wrongs of prescribing antidepressants to an ever-increasing proportion of the adult population (9.8% in Australia, 13% in NZ) even as the suicide rates trend higher because that is an empirical matter which will be settled elsewhere. My concern is with the content and manner of the RANZCP press release. Acting per Principle 10.5, RANZCP Code of Ethics, I will deal with each point in turn.

1. Claims by New Zealand newspaper The Press that antidepressant and antipsychotic medications dont work are highly irresponsible and potentially very stigmatising for people experiencing mental illness

New Programme Supports Withdrawal From Antidepressants "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Manasa Ayurveda has launched a new harm reduction based program that will support people in tapering from antidepressant drugs.

Manasa Ayurveda aims to work collaboratively, and takes a non-adherence harm reduction approach (Aldridge, 2012). This means that whilst not encouraging withdrawal against medical advice, it is recognised that people do make this choice. Manasa Ayurveda offers practical therapeutic support with withdrawal where a person has already made a decision to do this.

The Manasa Ayurveda withdrawal support programme is carefully designed and led by an international expert on non-adherence harm reduction (Aldridge, 2012). Its unique withdrawal programme integrates personally tailored Ayurvedic therapies and is facilitated by a UK registered mental health professional who is also an Ayurvedic therapist.

Blizzard Launches Restaurant With Shitty Servers "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

IRVINE, Calif. Early reports coming from Blizzard Entertainments newest venture, a newly opened downtown cafe, are indicating that the service is consistently incompetent and unsatisfying.

The servers here are awful, just the worst, said diner Richard Hall to reporters. Theyre sluggish, inattentive, and probably worst of all, theyre just not willing to improve at all. The biggest tragedy is the food here is actually really great. This could be the best place in town if the front of the house could get their heads out of their asses.

All reviews and opinions point to an absolutely thrilling menu at the new restaurant, rich with entrees that are both innovative inventions and twists on classic culinary ideas. That level of quality have led many to wonder why more attention wasnt being paid to the waitstaffs lack of consistency.

Read More From Hard Drive, The Only Ethical Gaming Journalism Site on The Internet:

We can do whatever we want, were Blizzard, said Jeff Kaplan, Vice President of Blizzard Entertainment, as well as shift manager at the new diner. If we sneeze on a hamburger and spike it on the ground, people will lap it up like Chihuahuas so long as we slap a Hearthstone logo on it. As far as the servers doing their job, we spent a lot of money building this property up, excuse me if I dont go the extra mile and pay a kid ten dollars an hour to bring you a milkshake. What am I, made of money? We are a very small company.

The restaurant, located in a strip mall between a Starbucks and Dollar General, has been open for several weeks. Blizzard has pledged to update the menu several times a year in an effort to keep patrons satisfied. Despite a large portion of unhappy customers, there is also a considerable amount that have reported being content with their dining experience.......

BMW link to erectile dysfunction "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

giving out all the wrong indications, or actually no indication at allIn research undertaken by the British Medical Association a link between driving a BMW and erectile dysfunction has been positively identified. It is estimated that the condition affects more than 95% of male BMW drivers after tests were undertaken on a sample of 10,000 UK men between the ages of 30 and 65.

Head of the study group, Marcus Johnson said, I first became aware of the phenomenon when two of my BMW driving colleagues expressed a downturn in their sexual prowess. However, once behind the wheel of their Series 5s, X1s or Z4s they expressed absolute orgasmic pleasure at sitting on the arse of the car in front and overtaking in inappropriate circumstances.

Johnson expanded his research to include men from other employment groups, such as insurance men; banking professionals and chartered surveyors. He noted that orgasmic reactions were higher when driving black BMWs rather than white models where the vinegar stroke ratio was almost 10% lower. Interestingly drivers of any BMW model with the word Coup in the name became total flat-liners after walking away from the car and applying the central locking system. The sound of the locks coupled with the flashing security lights was more effective than an overdose of bromide.

The research has indicated a psychosomatic reaction between the driver and the vehicle with social and behavioural factors affecting bodily processes. In laymans terms these guys just cant get it up once they are out of the drivers seat.

Treatments are now being studied with the power of suggestion through positive thinking being the likely way forward. In our carefully controlled arousal tests we used images of Pippa Middletons arse; Beyoncs shaking tush and a selection of MILFs including Lulu, Twiggy and Harriet Harman but all to no avail. However when extreme close ups of rear bumpers were projected on to the screen in the BMW simulator it almost put our laboratory out of Kleenex. Random images of Jeremy Clarkson also produced a similar outcome.

As tests continue female BMW drivers are also coming under scrutiny, so far results have shown a predilection for lank blonde hair, pin stripe trouser suits and permanent use of a mobile phone at speeds of over 60mph.

Johnson concluded, If we can identify the adverse biological and psychological effects related to driving a BMW, then perhaps other road users will be spared the misfortune of having a sweaty faced in...


P. foetida also has analgesic and anti-inflammatory activities. "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

PMID:  Asian Pac J Trop Med. 2011 Aug ;4(8):600-3. PMID: 21914535 Abstract Title:  Analgesic and anti-inflammatory activities of Passiflora foetida L. Abstract:  OBJECTIVE: To investigate the analgesic and anti-inflammatory activities of ethanol extract of Passiflora foetida (P. foetida) leaves.METHODS: Ethanol extract of P. foetida leaf was evaluated for analgesic action by acetic acid-induced writhing and hot plate method in albino mice. The anti-inflammatory property of ethanolic leaf extract was tested by carrageenan induced acute paw edema and histamine induced acute paw edema in rats.RESULTS: The dose 200 mg/kg of P. foetida leaf extract exhibited highest significant analgesic activity [(13.500.43) min] at a reaction time of 20 min in hot plate method in mice. The ethanol extract of leaf dose 100 mg/kg produced a highly significant anti inflammatory effect [(1.3020.079) mL] in rats.CONCLUSIONS: It is very clear that P. foetida also has analgesic and anti-inflammatory activities for the pharmaceuticals.

Scheduling Slack messages using AWS Lambda "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Migrating to serverless brings a lot of questions. How do you do some of the non-serverless tasks, such as a cronjob in a serverless application?

Lets say you have a small Slack app that sends the top five stories from Hacker News to your Slack channel. At some point you decided to shut down the server where you run that app, but you still want to receive the stories. Serverless with AWS Lambda seems cool. But how do you trigger the AWS Lambda function at a specific time?

All diagrams are created using SimpleDiagrams 4 app

In case youre not familiar, serverless is a method of deploying and running applications on cloud infrastructure, on a pay-per-use basis and without renting or buying servers. To learn more about serverless and how it works with AWS, see this guide.

You can trigger AWS Lambda functions with a variety of AWS services, such as API Gateway for APIs and S3 for files. For the full list of services, see the docs here. One of the available triggers is AWS CloudWatch Events.

Wait, isnt CloudWatch for logs?

Well, it is. But it seems someone at AWS is a big fan of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde and in some cases a few different services are hidden behind the same name (hello Cognito).

Beside serving logs, Amazon CloudWatch has events that deliver a near real-time stream of system events that describe changes in AWS resources. Events can also schedule automated actions using cron or rate expressions. Bingo!

Application flow

How would the app work with CloudWatch Events?

You need to configure a CloudWatch scheduled event using cron syntax or rate expression (ie. 5 minutes). The CloudWatch event then triggers an AWS Lambda function at configured intervals. In your AWS Lambda function, you get the top five articles from the Hacker News API and post them to Slack using Incoming Webhooks.

You can see the flow in the figure below.

The flow of the serverless scheduled Slack messages

This sounds simple, right? Lets see how it works in practice.

PR: OKO Pay Is a New Global Payment System in the OKOIN Environment "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

OKO Pay Is a New Global Payment System in the OKOIN Environment

This is a paid press release, which contains forward looking statements, and should be treated as advertising or promotional material. does not endorse nor support this product/service. is not responsible for or liable for any content, accuracy or quality within the press release.

On April 25, 2018, VR Technology, the OKOIN project owner and ICO establisher, will officially present the OKO Pay global payment system based on blockchain and smart contracts.

The OKOIN project was initially developed for the internal needs of the company to sell VR OKO headsets and the relevant content all over the world, even in the countries where the 18+ industry is legally restricted. With the environment development, however, many partners have become interested in the system: production studios, sex shops, erotic clubs, etc.

The original task implied making OKOIN a settlement system for the VR OKO environment. However, demand begets supply. If other market players are interested in the system, everyone interested might as well enjoy implementation. The token will only benefit from it.

Roman Pavlovich, CEO VR Technology

As a result, the VR Technology management made a decision to develop a parallel project development path to integrate OKOIN in partners commercial systems. Thus, the idea of OKO Pay global payment system appeared.

OKO Pay Payment System

OKO Pay is a multi-purpose payment system for the +18 industry. VR Technology has already signed 9 integration contracts. In other words, OKO Pay will be implemented on partner websites and launched in a test run mode upon its official presentation, so that any user will be able to buy goods and services for OKOIN 100% anonymously. It significantly establishes token positions on the exchange and promotes its price increase.

VR Technology is also negotiating with Damon Lawners private membership erotic theater, SNCTM. If the negotiations are successful,...


Running around the block: a beginner meets AWS Lambda "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Computing! It sure has a very long, vivid (and sometimes awkward) history. Some key milestones include:

DSKY: NASAs Apollo Guidance Computer

In line with all this, software application paradigms also have shifted dramatically. Starting from pure hardware-based programming, to monoliths, modularity, SOA, cloud, and now serverless.

At this point in time, serverless generally means FaaS (functions-as-a-service). And FaaS literally means AWS Lambda, both from popularity and adoption points of view.

Hence, it is not an exaggeration to claim that the popularity of serverless development may be related to the ease of use of Lambdas. Or is it?

Lambda: leading the Serverless Revolution

Well, Lambda has been around since 2015. It is already integrated into much of the AWS ecosystem, and is in production use at hundreds (if not thousands) of companies. So, Lambda should be pretty intuitive and easy to use, right?

Well, in my case, it seemed not.

The stem bark of P. foetida has significant anti-inflammatory properties. "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

PMID:  Nat Prod Commun. 2015 Jun ;10(6):929-31. PMID: 26197519 Abstract Title:  Anti-inflammatory Flavonoids Isolated from Passiflora foetida. Abstract:  In this study, we evaluated the anti-inflammatory activity of the soluble ethyl acetate fraction and chemical components of the stem bark of Passiflora foetida (Passifloraceae). Ten flavonoids (1-10) were isolated by various chromatographic techniques, and their structures were determined based on spectroscopic analyses by using nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR). Luteolin (2) and chrysoeriol (3) showed the most potent inhibition of nitric oxide (NO) production in macrophage cell line, RAW264.7, with half maximal inhibitor concentration (IC50) values of 1.2 and 3.1M, respectively. These compounds suppressed lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-induced inducible NO synthase (iNOS) expression at the transcription level. Our research indicates that the stem bark of P. foetida has significant anti-inflammatory properties, suggesting that its flavonoids may have anti-inflammatory benefits.

Pace Law School also has a strong Environmental Law program

NYU Law sending free help to 10 Dem AGs for environmental causes; Marcellus Shale group alarmed at message

From an Article by Nicholas Malfitano, Pennsylvania Record, March 6, 2018

NEW YORK Democratic state attorneys general, like Pennsylvanias Josh Shapiro, are getting free help from New York University School of Law to bolster their environmental causes, though a Commonwealth business advocacy group worries this results in important work being outsourced to an out-of-state entity.

It was announced in August that a nearly-$6 million funding grant from Bloomberg Philanthropies, administered through the NYU School of Laws recently formed State Energy and Environmental Impact Center, will dispatch special prosecutors to the offices of several state attorneys general to advance policies aimed at the development of renewable energy, protecting the environment and addressing climate change.

David J. Hayes, the State Energy and Environmental Impact Centers Executive Director, said, Each of the attorney general offices chosen to participate has demonstrated a commitment to advancing progressive policies on clean energy, the environment and climate change.

Hayes is a former deputy secretary and chief operating officer of the Department of the Interior, for presidents Bill Clinton and Barack Obama. Since leaving government service five years ago, he has served as a professor at Stanford University Law School.

State attorneys general play a unique role in defending the citizens of their states from environmentally destructive actions and in advocating for the interests of their constituents. NYU Law fellows will allow them to play an even greater role protecting their states, Hayes added.

Initially, Washington, D.C. and six states were chosen for the first phase of this program: Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Mexico, New York and Washington. In December, it was announced that Oregon, Virginia and Pennsylvania would join the list.

All 10 attorneys general are Democrats, and some have made national headlines in this area before. New Yorks Eric Schneiderman...


Extracts of Passiflora foetida inhibited the LPS-induced inflammatory and oxidative responses. "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

PMID:  Int J Mol Med. 2018 Mar 12. Epub 2018 Mar 12. PMID: 29532853 Abstract Title:  Anti-inflammatory effects of Passiflora foetida L. in LPS-stimulated RAW264.7 macrophages. Abstract:  Passiflora foetida L. (Passifloraceae), a perennial climber in general, is used for treating many ailments in conventional medicine. In this study, the anti-inflammatory effect of methanolic extracts of P. foetida L. (PFME) and the involvement of nuclear factor-B (NF-B) signalling in the regulation of inflammation were investigated. PFME prevented the production of prostaglandin E2 (PGE2) and the expression of inducible cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) in lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-induced macrophage cells. Additionally, PFME reduced the release of pro-inflammatory cytokines. Moreover, in LPS-induced RAW264.7 cells, the phosphorylation of MAPKs (ERK1/2, p38 and JNK) was suppressed by PFME. Furthermore, PFME inhibited the NF-B activation induced by LPS, which was associated with nuclear p65 levelswith the abrogation of IB degradation and subsequent decreases. These results indicated that the PFME inhibited the LPS-induced inflammatory and oxidative responses. Therefore, we propose that the PFME may be therapeutic for treating inflammatory diseases.

The Concerned Parents Project March 24th "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

The profit motive is a powerful motive in human affairs. Pharmaceutical companies make huge profits by supplying powerful chemicals called psychiatric medications that are touted as safely and effectively treating things called mental disorders.

If you are merely in despair, they have no way to make a profit from you. If that despair is given the medical-sounding name clinical depression, then they can provide a medical-seeming pill called an antidepressant. These medical-seeming pills may indeed have an effect on you, either a placebo effect, some other positive effect, or a negative effect. Pharmaceutical companies have a large and natural vested interest in selling these chemicals, as they are profitable and because the modelthat mental disorders can be created by professionals sitting around a tableassures mental disorder growth and future sales.

However, pharmaceutical companies arent the only ones with a vested interest in the mental disorder paradigm. Universities and university researchers need it, because it is an avenue to research dollars. Mental health professionals need it, because it bolsters their prestige, makes them look like experts, and provides a rationale for what they do. The courts need it, as a way to provide some distinctions between who is in their right mind and who isnt. Society needs it, as a mechanism for controlling unruly and unwanted public behaviors. Schools need it, for the same reasons. This web of need extends far and wide and includes more folks than you might suppose. It even includes your friends, neighbors, and loved ones, who have their own vested interest in believing in a model that looks and smells like medicine. Most people are invested in their cultures dominant paradigms and tend to believe them unquestioningly. So, who has a vested interest in your childs mental disorder? Just about everyone.

Oleanolic acid acetate may mitigate the inflammatory response and development of pulmonary fibrosis in the lungs. "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

PMID:  Respir Physiol Neurobiol. 2018 Mar 2 ;252-253:1-9. Epub 2018 Mar 2. PMID: 29505886 Abstract Title:  Oleanolic acid acetate attenuates polyhexamethylene guanidine phosphate-induced pulmonary inflammation and fibrosis in mice. Abstract:  Oleanolic acid acetate (OAA), triterpenoid compound isolated from Vigna angularis (azuki bean), has been revealed anti-inflammatory in several studies. We investigated the effects of OAA against polyhexamethylene guanidine phosphate (PHMG-P)-induced pulmonary inflammation and fibrosis in mice. OAA treatment effectively alleviated PHMG-P-induced lung injury, including the number of total and differential cell in BAL fluid, histopathological lesions and hydroxyproline content in a dose dependent manner. Moreover, OAA treatment significantly decreased the elevations of IL-1, IL-6, TNF-, TGF-1, and fibronectin, and the activation of the NOD-like receptor family, pyrin domain containing 3 (NLRP3) inflammasome in the lungs of PHMG-P-treated mice. Cytokines are known to be key modulators in the inflammatory responses that drive progression of fibrosis in injured tissues. The activation of NLRP3 inflammasome has been reported to be involved in induction of inflammatory cytokines. These results indicate that OAA may mitigate the inflammatory response and development of pulmonary fibrosis in the lungs of mice treated with PHMG-P.

Oleanolic acid induces osteosarcoma cell apoptosis by inhibition of Notch signaling. "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

PMID:  Mol Carcinog. 2018 Mar 22. Epub 2018 Mar 22. PMID: 29566282 Abstract Title:  Oleanolic acid induces osteosarcoma cell apoptosis by inhibition of Notch signaling. Abstract:  Oleanolic acid (OA), a naturally occurring triterpenoid, exhibits potential antitumor activity in several tumor cell lines. Although the inhibition effects of OA on proliferation and survival in human cancers have been confirmed, the potential mechanism underlying OA-induced osteosarcoma cell death has not yet been fully elucidated. Our results in this study showed that OA inhibits proliferation and viability of osteosarcoma cells in a dose-dependent manner. Flow cytometry assays revealed that apoptosis in osteosarcoma cells was significantly induced by OA treatment, while this induction was blocked by Jagged1-mediated activation of Notch signaling. Western blot analysis and a mitochondrial membrane potential assay demonstrated that OA functions through the mitochondrial apoptosis pathway. More importantly, our data revealed that OA treatment interrupted the balance between pro-apoptotic factors and anti-apoptotic factors in osteosarcoma cells by inhibition of the Notch signaling pathway. These data suggest that OA induces osteosarcoma cell apoptosis by targeting mitochondria in a Notch signaling-dependent manner. Thus, OA may be a promising drug for adjuvant chemotherapy in osteosarcoma. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.

Tony Taylor denies doing an MA in Entrepreneurial Philanthropy and being headhunted for a CEO Third Sector job "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"


Be not disturbed! There is no basis for the rum rumour that I have embraced neoliberalism and applied to do an MA in Entrepreneurial Philanthropy after being head-hunted for the post of CEO of an unnamed leading Youth Surveillance charity. Although Im a trifle disappointed not to be asked. This wicked whopper is the work evidently of a mole, who overheard me start a sentence, neoliberalism brought remarkable technological development and hallucinated on the spot, thus missing the caveat, yet has widened and deepened inequality. In addition, it seems the reporting rodent got wind of a discussion at the last IDYW Steering Group meeting, within which I talked of withdrawing from my role as Coordinator. Putting 2 and 2 together the creature came up with a formula, if not for a nerve agent one that indicated I was on the verge of betraying the cause and marketing my inner soul.

Seriously though you would hope theres no need for such an opening cliched clause, but nowadays, who can be sure?   there is a hint of truth in the tall tale. At our last Steering Group, we did discuss our collective capacity to keep the IDYW train on track, within which my ability to contribute was of concern. I indicated that because of, amongst other things, continuing personal pressures I was struggling to fulfil the coordinating role.

Gen Flynn Returns to Battle, 2108 "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Protect your IRA with Bitcoin - Click Here! Good morning, Im still reporting on: Gen Flynn Returns to Battle, 2108 Synopsis: The last time I was working in the Pentagon, Gen. Mike Flynn was the most respected name in military intelligence. Thats why I was pretty surprised when he was taken down so quickly by deep state operatives before President Trumps inauguration. Gen. Flynn was forced to take a plea deal to keep an out-of-control special counsel operation from bankrupting his entire family. Now that the Washington legal community understands the flawed basis for anything based on the illegal FISA warrants, Flynns sentencing has been put off and you can be sure to add indefinitely to that because more than likely, that conviction will be vacated by the government on some Friday afternoon where some huge sex scandal breaks out inside the beltway. As head of the DIA from July 2012 to his retirement in Aug. 2014, Flynn knows the complete history of every loser swamp dweller inside the Justice Department and FBI. Unlike this crooked, self-serving, power-mad cadre of the CCC, Flynn spent his life in selfless service to his nation. Unlike the swamp dwellers, he is willing to give his life for his country. And also unlike these denizens of the Satanic deep, Gen. Flynn lead an exemplary life without stain until their framing experts stepped in. Now, however, Flynn is once again unchained. Late last week he made his first public appearance to endorse California congressional candidate Omar Navarro in La Quinta, California. This can only mean one thing; Flynn is returning to the fight and on the front lines. Target #1: Deep State. As one close friend told the True Pundit: He knows where many political bodies are buried in D.C. and what does he have to lose? Nothing. The Mueller prosecution of Flynn has bankrupted the General. After 33 years of selfless military service, he has been forced to sell his house to pay his legal bills. Yes, he will eventually get it all back and more after the lawsuits are over, but at what age? He doesnt really care.

Coconut Oil Pulling Superior to Chemicals for Oral Health "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Swishing your mouth out with coconut oil may be a more effective and safer alternative to chemical mouthwashes, according to new research. 

A new study has proven for the first time that the oral use of coconut oil is effective in reducing plaque related to gingivitis, a common form of inflammation in the gum tissue of the mouth that occurs in response to bacterial biofilms (known as plaque) adhering to the surfaces of the teeth and which can lead to more serious oral condition known as periodontal disease.

Titled, Effect of coconut oil in plaque related gingivitis a preliminary report, and published in the Nigerian Medical Journal, researchers decided to test the hypothesis that the increasingly common practice of oil pulling or oil swishing therapy today, is as effective for maintaining oral health as has been believed for centuries. Oil pulling, in fact, is a traditional therapy that stretches at least as far back as 1500 years ago, where it was mentioned in the early Ayurvedic text, the Charaka Samhita, and which we covered in our article Oil Pulling: Ancient Secret for Optimal Health. Yet, traditional oil pulling was believed performed mainly with sesame oil, with available published studies also using sesame seed oil and not coconut.

The new study aimed to fill the data gap on coconut oil:

No studies have been done on the benefits of oil pulling using coconut oil to date. So a pilot study was planned to assess the effect of coconut oil pulling on plaque induced gingivitis.

The study enrolled 60 subjects between 16-18 years of age with plaque induced gingivitis. No control was used, rather, the study was designed to compare the baseline values and the post intervention values in a single group performing...

Triterpenes and phytosterols from Passiflora mucronata have cytotoxic effects against human prostate cancer and mouse malignant melanoma cell lines. "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

PMID:  Anticancer Agents Med Chem. 2018 Mar 14. Epub 2018 Mar 14. PMID: 29542423 Abstract Title:  Apoptosis caused by triterpenes and phytosterols and antioxidant activity of an enriched flavonoid extract and from Passiflora mucronata. Abstract:  The genus Passiflora is knew for food consumption mainly and it extracts present a variety of methabolites, including flavones, alkaloids and triterpenes usually correlated with their antioxidant and antitumoral activities. P. mucronata (Pm) is from Brazil South America and is characterized as"Maracuj de Restinga", being used in the folk medicine for treating insomnia and soothing. The present study evaluated in the first time, the antioxidant and cytotoxicity of the hydroalcoholic leaves extract and fractions from Pm. Their cytotoxic effects were against human prostate cancer (PC3) and mouse malignant melanoma (B16F10) cell lines, by the MTT and CV assays.-Amyrin, oleanolic acid, -sitosterol and stigmasterol were isolated as the main components of the most active hexane fraction. These substances were tested individually against the tumor cell lines, whereby -sitosterol and stigmasterol showed the most relevant activity to PC3 in CV assay and,oleanolic acid to B16F10 by the MTT assay. In addition, these compounds were analysed to cell cycle arrest, and stigmasterol decreased the number of cells in B16F10 line in the G1/G0 phase and subsequently, increased the cell number in sub-G1 phase, presumably indicating apoptosis as possible mode of cell death.The antioxidant activity by the DPPH method showed that the hydroalcoholic extract from the leaves presented higher antioxidant activity (EC50= 133.3 g/mL) compared to the flowers (EC50= 152.3 g/mL) and fruits (EC50=207.9 g/mL) extracts. By the HPLC-MS it was possible to identifythe main flavones present in the leaf extract (isoschaftoside, schaftoside, isovitexin, vitexin, isoorientin, orientin).

Japan Exchange Bitarg Denies Yahoo Acquisition Press Reports "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Media outlets are touting what would amount to a major shake-up of cryptocurrency exchanges, Bitarg Exchange selling off a little less than half its business to Yahoo Japan. Reports even detailed how Yahoo Japan (YJFX) would then launch still another exchange built on Bitargs system by spring of next year.

Binance Announces Expansion to Europes Blockchain Island "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

It has been quite a week for the worlds largest cryptocurrency exchange. The scare with Japanese regulators was eventually dismissed as FUD with CEO Zhao Changpeng taking to Twitter to call out irresponsible journalism. A more notable development though has been the recent announcement that the exchange is expanding into Europe.

A Maltese Move for Binance

In a Medium post a few hours ago Binance announced that it will be setting up operations in Malta. The announcement states that the company reviewed several locations before deciding on this one for its pro-blockchain legislation and financial stability. CEO Changpeng went on to state;

After meeting with Parliamentary Secretary, Mr Silvio Schembri, we were impressed by the logical, clear and forward thinking nature of Maltas leadership. After reviewing a proposal bill, we are convinced that Malta will be the next hotbed for innovative blockchain companies, and a centre of the blockchain ecosystem in Europe. Binance is committed to lending our expertise to help shape a healthy regulatory framework as well as providing funds for other blockchain start-ups to grow the industry further in Malta.

He also said that Binance will soon start a fiat-to-crypto exchange on the European island nation, and is close to securing a deal with local banks which will provide access to deposits and withdrawals. The move may be in light of recent regulatory tightening in Southeast Asia where Binance is currently based.

Maltas government is actively working on a blockchain technology framework to encourage development and investment. It is in the process of establishing a Virtual Currency Act and plans to setup a Malta Digital Innovation Authority. This will create a unique auditing framework to regulate blockchain investment operations such as ICOs.

Maltese Parliamentary Secretary for Financial Services, Digital Economy & Innovation, Silvio Schembri, praised the move;

This is a clear vote of confidence in our country and the work being done in this sector, mainly by the latest policy launched to offer a regulatory framework of DLT operations. It is obvious that Malta has become a natural point of reference on the international sphere and companies such as Binance will continue to look into Malta to further expand their operations or establish a base. Binances presence in Malta sustains our vision, that of making Malta The Blockchain Island,

Why Farmed Salmon Are a Toxic Junk Food "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

By Dr. Mercola

If youre aware of the health benefits of animal-based omega-3 fats and the fact that salmon is a great source, you may be shocked to discover that farmed salmon has more in common with junk food than health food. This is the grim reality revealed in Nicolas Daniels documentary Fillet-Oh-Fish, which includes exclusive footage from fish farms and factories across the globe.

Among the experts featured is Kurt Oddekalv, a respected Norwegian environmental activist who claims salmon farming is an unmitigated disaster, both from an environmental and human health perspective. Below the salmon farms dotted across the Norwegian fjords is a layer of waste some 15 meters (49.2 feet) deep, teeming with bacteria, drugs and toxic pesticides, and since the farms are located in open water, this pollution is in no way contained.

Farmed salmon also pose a more direct toxic threat to your health. Fish has always been considered a health food, but food testing reveals that todays farmed salmon is one of the most toxic foods in the world. As noted by the producers of the film, through intensive farming and global pollution, the flesh of the fish we eat has turned into a deadly chemical cocktail.1

In a global assessment of farmed salmon published in the January 2004 issue of Science,2 13 persistent organic pollutants were found. Farmed salmon also does not have the nutritional profile of wild salmon. Rather than being a wonderful source of much-needed omega-3 fats, farmed salmon contains far more omega-6 than omega-3, which can have deleterious health ramifications, seeing how most people are deficient in omega-3 while getting far more omega-6 than they need.

Salmon Farming Is Not a Green Solution

More than half of the fish Americans eat now comes from fish farms.3 Aquaculture promotes itself as a sustainable solution to overfishing, but in reality, fish farms cause more problems than they solve. For starters, it takes 1.5 to 8 kilograms of wild fish to produce just 1 kilogram of farmed salmon, so the aquaculture industry is actually contributing heavily to the depletion of wild fish stocks rather than saving it.4

A salmon farm can hold upward of....

Effective Ways to Pop Your Ears When Pressure Builds "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

By Dr. Mercola

Nearly 20 percent of Americans, or 48 million people, report having some degree of hearing loss.1 It may be easy to take hearing for granted as it happens without any effort on your part. However it is a complex process, beginning with sound in your environment and ending in your brain. Unlike any other sense involving a chemical process, such as smell, taste or sight, hearing is strictly the result of physical movement.

This physical movement is dependent on specific factors in your ear canal and Eustachian tube working to equalize pressure between the outside of your eardrum and inside your middle ear. This is one reason why people have difficulty flying when they are congested. But, before understanding how pressure affects your eardrum and hearing, it helps to understand the structure of your ear.

Hearing and Your Ear

In this short video youll see a demonstration of how sound is transmitted through the structures of the ear. Sound is created by vibrations caused in the air, which your ears capture. The structure of your outer ear helps you decipher the direction the sound originates from and helps direct the sound into the ear canal. As sound waves enter the canal, they vibrate the eardrum, the piece of thin skin sitting between your outer and middle ear.

Behind the eardrum sits the middle ear and a group of tiny bones called the malleus, incus and stapes. Collectively these are called the ossicles and are the smallest bones in your body.2 As the eardrum vibrates it moves the ossicles to amplify the force of sound as it passes through the middle ear to the inner ear and the cochlea.

The cochlea looks like a large snail and is filled with fluid to conduct sound to the auditory nerve, which then translates the impulses to your brain for interpretation. While the concept of how hearing works is fairly straightforward, the specifics of how the small structures produce recognizable patterns of sound in your brain is complex. Scientists are still learning how your brain interprets these electrical signals in the cerebral cortex, especially as it relates to prevention and treatment of hearing loss.

The structures behind your eardrum are in a closed system. In other words the eardrum maintains an airtight seal between your outer ear and your middle ea...


Testing the eggheads in the cryptocurrency market "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Some of the worlds best-known economists on Thursday announced plans to create what could be described as the thinking persons cryptocurrency. Saga aims to address many of the criticisms frequently thrown at bitcoin, the worlds biggest cryptocurrency, to position itself as an alternative digital currency that is more acceptable to the financial and political establishment.

It is being launched by a Swiss foundation with an advisory board featuring Jacob Frenkel, chairman of JPMorgan Chase International and former governor of the Bank of Israel; Myron Scholes, the Nobel Prize-winning economist; and Dan Galai, co-creator of the Vix volatility index. The Saga token aims to avoid the wild price swings of many cryptocurrencies by tethering itself to reserves deposited in a basket of fiat currencies at commercial banks. Holders of Saga will be able to claim their money back by cashing in the cryptocurrency.

The currency also aims to avoid the anonymity afforded by bitcoin, which has raised financial crime concerns with regulators and bankers. Saga will require owners to pass anti-money laundering checks and allow national authorities to check the identity of a holder when required.

Oh so respectable sounding!  Theyre not doing an ICO, instead there is a variable fractional reserve system, and the ruling principle is that Saga, the asset, entitles its investors to a rising number of Saga as usage of the cryptocurrency grows.  It sounds like a bet on the notion that bootstrapping is central to crypto success.  But do investors really want safe harbours from the raging volatility?  Do investors want a currency at all?  By the way, this one is proof of stake, not proof of work.

Here is their web site, and here is the White Paper.  Here are other readings on the asset.  Here is the original FT article, FTAlphaville is less impressed.

Do the participants have too much skin in other games?  So far I dont see the point of doing this one, as it doesnt create an asset wit...


Asian Altcoin Trading Roundup: Top Cryptocurrency is Binance Coin "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Fortunately the decline did not last long and markets have stabilized somewhat as we enter the weekend. Most cryptocurrencies are in the green during this mornings Asian trading session. Bitcoin is showing gains of 5.5% on the day and is approaching $9,000 once again. Altcoins are also mostly up and one that is leading the rally this morning is Binance Coin.

Coinmarketcap reports that BNB is trading 26% higher on the day. Binances own cryptocurrency is currently valued at $12.16, up from $9.58 this time yesterday.

Gains against BTC have been impressive over the month at over 47% from around 93000 sats this time last month.

BNB is used only on the Binance exchange to facilitate cheaper trading rates for customers. The boost for the coin comes from an announcement a while ago that Binance would be expanding and setting up operations in Malta. According to the company blog;

After reviewing several different locations, the company decided to invest in the European nation due to its existing pro-blockchain legislation and the stability that it offers financial technology companies through its regulatory framework. With plans to substantially grow its operations, there are plans to eventually hire up to 200 people to assist their expansion.

BNB has a current market capacity of $1.2 billion, there are 197 million total supply with 99 million circulating on the exchange. Trade volume for the past 24 hours has increased to $192 million or 21,665 BTC.

This Is The Smallest Bird In The World "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Hummingbirds are familiar visitors to gardens during spring and summer, hovering in midair, dipping their long, tapered bills deep into the hearts of flowers.

While these birds are known for their small stature, theyre fairly easy to spot with their mile-a-minute wings and iridescent feathers. But one type of hummingbird is rather mysterious even if you are a resident of its native Cuba. In fact, its the smallest bird in the world: the bee hummingbird.

This petite hummingbird, with its beautiful bright plumage, is a bird-watchers dream (if you can set your binoculars to the right setting). The teeny tiny bird is about the size of you guessed it a large bee, weighing one-fifteenth of an ounce, or less than a dime. The little bird shares the island with its larger cousin, the Cuban emerald, which is over two and a half times the bee hummingbirds size.

Game of Thrones Bitcoin Hacker Included in Broader Iranian Sanctions

US Department of Justice formally sanctioned an Iranian company and nine Iranian nationals for broad, worldwide hacking schemes against government outlets, universities, energy concerns, and private companies. Among the over half dozen hackers named was the alleged perpetrator of the Home Box Office (HBO) compromise and subsequent bitcoin ransom. The wildly popular HBO drama, Game of Thrones, was scooped up in 1.5 terabytes of stolen data, and threatened with pre-season leaks unless demands for millions of dollars in cryptocurrency were met.

Game of Thrones Bitcoin Hacker Named and Shamed in DOJ Iranian Sanctions

By summer of last year, HBO announced it had been hacked. Terabytes of data stolen included closely held unaired episodes of its Emmy-award winning fantasy drama Game of Thrones (GOT). Its the largest known media hack of its kind, seven times that of the notorious 2014 Sony data compromise. Soon after, partial leaks made their way around, prompting demands towards HBO for upwards of six million dollars in bitcoin or suffer the entire GOT season being distributed online.

In November of 2017, Iranian Behzad Mesri was indicted by US authorities for the GOT affair. Mr. Mesri has been linked directly to the HBO hacks, though his ties to the Iranian government remain loose at best rumo...


What Happens To Your Dog If He Eats A Chocolate Bunny? "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

For dogs, springtime means long trips to the park, soft grass on the paws (no more booties!) and plenty of basking in the (now significantly longer) hours of sunshine.

But the season of growth can also come with serious dangers that pet owners should not overlook. For those who celebrate Easter, baskets full of toys and candy can be deadly to dogs, and festive holiday flowers can wreak havoc on cats.

The pastel-colored, sugary marshmallow Peeps, jelly beans and SweeTarts that you find in your Easter basket are generally not toxic, but they can lead to gastrointestinal upsets when eaten by dogs, according to Dr. John Gicking of BluePearl Veterinary Partners.

If your pup has a tendency to raid the countertop and garbage can for food scraps, theres one thing you definitely dont want him getting his paws on this April a solid chocolate bunny.

Long considered an Easter staple, these adorable cacao creatures can cause your dog some serious discomfort or worse.

The toxic part of chocolate for dogs is something called theobromine, which is a caffeine-like substance, Gicking tells The Dodo. Dogs are more sensitive to the caffeine-like effects of theobromine than humans. Chocolate toxicity will cause a higher heart rate [and irregular heartbeat]; it will cause them to be sick to their stomach and they can have seizures.

Dogs are not able to metabolize theobromine as quickly as humans, so even a tiny piece of chocolate can have lasting effects. In small quantities, your pup may experience stomach upset, vomiting, hyperactivity and jitters, as if theyve had a bit too much coffee in the morning.

But not all types of chocolate are created equal. Dark chocolate and baking chocolate have higher concentrations of theobromine than milk chocolate, so the darker the chocolate the more poisonous the treat is for pets.

Dark chocolate contains, on average, 5.5 milligrams of theobromine per gram of chocolate, wh...

Utah Din Bikyah Encourages Public Comments on BLM and USFSs Monument Management Plans "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Bears Ears Monument

Published March 24, 2018

BLUFF, UTAH  Utah Din Bikyah encourages the public to submit comments to halt and slow down the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and U.S. Forest Service (USFS) scoping phase of planning for the Shasha Jaa and Indian Creek Units of Bears Ears National Monument. UDB believes it is disrespectful to the judicial branch of government and a waste of tax payer dollars to proceed prior to the ongoing litigation being settled by the courts.

Please oppose the planning process underway by the BLM and USFS which is driven by Trumps dismembering of Bears Ears National Monument by 85%. Please also oppose HR 4532, the Curtis bill, said Mark Maryboy, a board member for UDB. He added that tribal consultation has not occurred with the Hopi, Navajo Ute, Ute Mountain Ute and Zuni, which are plaintiffs in the suit against Trump.

Trumps boundaries do not honor tribal voices, Maryboy said, especially since the two units Indian Creek and Shash Jaa were designated without tribal consultation and without any cultural ceremonies to support them. Under the original boundaries of BENM, ceremonies were performed to honor the voices of the tribes and their way of life.

It is clear with the absence of these ceremonies for Indian Creek and Shash Jaa Units, Native voices are not being honored and tribes are not being consulted, Maryboy said.

Congressman Ruben Gallego, who visited Bears Ears last weekend, also encourages the American public to submit public comments on the scoping period process. Since visiting the 1.3 million-acre Bears Ears National Monument, Gallego says he has a much closer connection to the ancestral lands of the Hopi, Navajo, Ute, Ute Mountain Ute and Zuni people.

The whole goal of me being out here is bringing attention to the Bears Ears National Monument and be able to push back on Curtis bill and the Presidents actions. I think that a lot of people will naturally gravitate to the side of the five tribes that have historical, cultural and religious claims to this area. But to actually see it for myself, hear about it, and actually feel what some of these members have been feeling, is really important to me, Gallego said.

This is How We Build the Tribal Health Workforce "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Navajo Nation President Russell Begaye and Dr. Glorinda Segay, director of Navajo Department of Health and co-chair for the Community Health Aide Program Tribal Advisory Group.

Published March 24, 2018

PHOENIX Navajo Nation President Russell Begaye attended the first meeting for the Community Health Aide Program (CHAP) Tribal Advisory Group (TAG) on Mar. 21-22 to build the tribal health workforce and increase access to health care for Native Americans across the country.

There are gaps in the healthcare workforce that need to be filled, President Russell Begaye said. And the group here is responsible for developing the policy allowing community members to fill those gaps. What this means is shorter patient wait times, more preventative care and better health outcomes overall. At the head of this effort, empowering tribal nations stands Navajo.

CHAP TAG is a newly created group charged with providing input and feedback to Indian Health Service (IHS) to expand the use of community health aides, which are mid-level health care providers. Specifically, there are two primary positions under examination for the federal expansion of CHAP: dental health aides and behavioral health aides.

Dr. Glorinda Segay, director of the Navajo Department of Health, was nominated and selected as the tribal co-chair for CHAP TAG and she will serve with Dr. Beverly Cotton who is the federal co-chair.

This is a great opportunity for Native Americans, Segay said. Navajos community health representatives have been successful in improving health outcomes largely because they have a cultural and traditional basis. We see the opportunity for community health aides to do the same.

On the Navajo Nation, there are currently 99 community health representatives that provide health outreach, health promotion and disease prevention services under the tribes Community Health Representative and Outreach Program. These individuals are frontline public health workers. They are from the communities they serve and, as a result, are culturally competent and have a low turnover rate.

There are key differences between community health representatives and community health aides. However, as one of the group members put it, both are bound by the concept of community health. Essentia...

The Race Between Segwit and Bitcoin Cash Is Heating Up

The introduction of Segwit and the launch of bitcoin cash (BCH) were two attempts at solving the bitcoins scaling problem. Both movements took a different approach, with Segwit seeking to reduce transaction size and BCH seeking to increase the block size. A new report compares the transaction volume on each chain, BTC (Segwit) and BCH, since last summers hard fork, and the numbers are remarkably close.

Blockchain scaling is one part technical, one part ideological. There was a number of reasons that led to the fork of bitcoin core in August to form bitcoin cash, but at its heart it came down to increasing transaction capacity. Segwit sought to compress the amount of data in each transaction, thereby freeing up block space, while bitcoin cash made the size of each block bigger, up to a maximum of 8MB. New data published by Bitmex Research shows how each chain has fared since bitcoin core and bitcoin cash went their separate ways.

Woman Driving Along Finds Someone Unusual Stuck In The Snow "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Raelene Prieb was on her way home from work this week when she spotted something rather unusual.

There, on the snowy roadway in Saskatchewan, Canada, was a portly porcupine who was clearly having some problems.

Credit: Raelene Prieb

Somehow, the spiky fella had gotten himself all topsy-turvy and now his little feet were kicking as he struggled to right himself. Prieb was concerned.

I stopped to watch and see if he could get up, she told The Dodo. Once I realized he couldnt, I got out to help him.

Armed with a snow-brush/ice scraper, Prieb gently assisted the porcupine in flipping back over, offering some reassuring words in the process. Moments later, it became obvious how he'd gotten himself into that predicament in the first place, though Prieb helped him over that problem, too.

Here's video she took of the charming rescue. 

Disaster averted, the porcupine then continued on his way like it was really no big deal.

Still, Prieb stopped by the spot the next day just to be sure all was well, finding just footprints and a few trees he'd nibbled the bark off of. One can work up quite an appetite being stuck in the snow.

"Im assuming he moved on across the field to the larger forested area," Prieb said.

All in all, Prieb was just glad she was able to lend a hand.

"It felt amazing to just experience this creature so close and personal," she said. "And who wouldnt help him get on his way!"

Cat's Absolute Favorite Toy In The World Is Carrots "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Ben was found as a stray in Big Sur, California, when he was just a tiny kitten. A young girl saw him wandering alone, and since she knew he was too young to be on his own, she put him in her pocket, took him home and begged her dad to let her keep him. Her dad said they couldnt have a kitten at that time, unfortunately, but quickly found another family who was more than happy to adopt the little guy.

Every time Bens mom goes shopping, he cant wait until she gets home so he can raid the shopping bags to see if she happened to buy any of his favorite toy. Rather than let his family eat the carrots, Ben immediately takes them for himself, and plays with them for as long as his mom will let him. He doesnt eat them himself either, but rather regards them as beloved toys, and sometimes, he even cuddles up with them and falls asleep.

Save the Krill urges Greenpeace report "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

In Antarctica, its usually the whales, seals and penguins that take the spotlight, but a new report focuses on an animal further down the food chain: the Antarctic krill (Euphausia superba). In a report issued last week, Greenpeace International outlines the vital role that this minute crustacean plays in Antarcticas marine ecology and documents incursions of krill-fishing vessels into coastal waters around the Antarctic Peninsula. The report claims that increased demand for krill oil coupled with easier access to the Southern Ocean due to warmer temperatures could result in disruption of vulnerable ecosystems. The group is calling for krill-fishing companies to cease fishing in proposed marine protected areas (MPAs) in the Weddell Sea and other Antarctic waters. Krill form the backbone of Antarcticas food chains, Louisa Casson, a Greenpeace campaigner based in the groups United Kingdom office, told Mongabay. The tiny shrimp-like creatures feed on photosynthetic plankton and in turn become a vital food source for the Southern Oceans iconic wildlife, including five species of baleen whales, numerous seal species, seabirds like penguins and albatrosses, fish and squid.

To observe the krill and fishing industry firsthand, Greenpeace sent its icebreaker ship, the Arctic Sunrise, on an expedition to the Antarctic Peninsula and the Weddell Sea in January of this year. The crew, Casson told Mongabay, saw krill vessels in the immediate vicinity of whales and penguins so that you can see that they are directly competing for the same


The combination of fisetin and paclitaxel is expected to have a synergistic anticancer efficacy and a significant potential for the treatment of NSCLC. "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

PMID:  Int J Mol Sci. 2018 Feb 27 ;19(3). Epub 2018 Feb 27. PMID: 29495431 Abstract Title:  Evaluation of Anti-Metastatic Potential of the Combination of Fisetin with Paclitaxel on A549 Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer Cells. Abstract:  The identification and development of new agents with a therapeutic potential as well as novel drug combinations are gaining the attention of scientists and clinicians as a plausible approach to improve therapeutic regimens for chemoresistant tumors. We have recently reported that the flavonoid fisetin (FIS), at physiologically attainable concentrations, acts synergistically with clinically achievable doses of paclitaxel (PTX) to produce growth inhibitory and pro-death effects on A549 human non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) cells. To further investigate a potential therapeutic efficacy of the combination of fisetin with paclitaxel, we decided to assess its impact on metastatic capability of A549 cells as well as its toxicity toward normal human lung fibroblast. Cell viability, cell migration, and invasion were measured by thiazolyl blue tetrazolium bromide (MTT) assay, wound healing assay, and Transwell chamber assay, respectively. The expression of metastasis-related genes was assessed with quantitative reverse transcriptase real-time polymerase chain reaction (qRT-PCR). Actin and vimentin filaments were examined under the fluorescence microscope. The combination of FIS and PTX significantly reduced cancer cell migration and invasion, at least partially, through a marked rearrangement of actin and vimentin cytoskeleton and the modulation of metastasis-related genes. Most of these effects of the combination treatment were significantly greater than those of individual agents. Paclitaxel alone was even more toxic to normal cells than the combination of this drug with the flavonoid, suggesting that FIS may provide some protection against PTX-mediated cytotoxicity. The combination of FIS and PTX is expected to have a synergistic anticancer efficacy and a significant potential for the treatment of NSCLC, however, further in vitro and in vivo studies are required to confirm this preliminary evidence.

Fisetin could improve the inflammatory status in colorectal cancer patients. "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

PMID:  Food Funct. 2018 Mar 15. Epub 2018 Mar 15. PMID: 29541713 Abstract Title:  Effect of fisetin supplementation on inflammatory factors and matrix metalloproteinase enzymes in colorectal cancer patients. Abstract:  A growing body of evidence indicates that inflammation is associated with tumorigenesis, metastasis and chemotherapeutic resistance in patients with colorectal cancer (CRC). Natural flavonoids are promising agents for inflammation-related tumor progression in patients with CRC. This study aimed to assess the efficacy of flavonoid fisetin supplementation on the inflammatory status and matrix metalloproteinase (MMP) levels in these patients. In this double-blind, randomized placebo-controlled clinical trial, 37 CRC patients undergoing chemotherapy were assigned to receive either 100 mg fisetin (n = 18) or placebo (n = 19) for seven consecutive weeks. The supplementation began one week before chemotherapy and continued until the end of the second chemotherapy cycle. Levels of interleukin (IL)-8, IL-10, high-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hs-CRP), MMP-7, and MMP-9 were measured in plasma using ELISA, before and after the intervention. The trial was registered at (code: IRCT2015110511288N9). The participants were 55.59 15.46 years old with 62.16% being male. After the intervention, the plasma levels of IL-8 and hs-CRP reduced significantly in the fisetin group (p

Scared Dog Gets Dragged Into Shelter By Owner Who's Abandoning Him "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Ann Flores couldnt believe what she was seeing  a woman was dragging a very scared and unhappy dog into the Harris County Animal Shelter in Houston, Texas. The 3-year-old dog had flopped onto the hard cement in the parking lot, doing everything he could to resist.

He laid on his back and just rolled over, Flores told The Dodo. It was like he was saying, Please dont take me in here.

Another woman, perhaps a friend or family member of the first woman, was dragging a second dog into the shelter.

They were both pulling, but the dogs wouldnt budge, Flores said. They had to pick them up because they just would not move. They would not walk in there.

Last Thursday, Flores and her friend were visiting the shelter because Flores friend was interested in adopting a dog. But Flores quickly became distracted by the two women dragging the dogs inside.

What infuriated Flores the most was that they were laughing.

They didnt care, Flores said. They were just laughing and giggling because the dogs wouldnt move. To them, it was just like throwing trash away. There was no remorse, nothing.

I was really, really angry, and I could feel my blood pressure rise, Flores added. Why get an animal if youre not going to keep it and do this to them? Its not fair.

Flores snapped a few photos and videos of the incident, and sent them to...

The present study is the first time to demonstrate the potency of both fisetin and fisetin micelles inducing apoptosis in ovarian cancer cells. "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

PMID:  BMC Complement Altern Med. 2018 Mar 15 ;18(1):91. Epub 2018 Mar 15. PMID: 29544480 Abstract Title:  Fisetin and polymeric micelles encapsulating fisetin exhibit potent cytotoxic effects towards ovarian cancer cells. Abstract:  BACKGROUND: The anti-tumor activities of Natural compounds and their derivatives are of great interest to pharmaceutical industries. Fisetin is one of prospective natural compounds in this regard but unfortunately with poor hydrophilicity.METHODS: The effects of unmodified and modified fisetin in cultured ovarian cancer cells were compared by transmission electronmicroscopy to determine apoptotic bodies, MTT assay to quantitate cell numbers, and fluorescence activated cell sorting analyse of various markers to determine the apoptotic state. In addition, the efficacy of fisetin and fisetin-micelles in vivo was determined by using immunocompromised mice. Apoptosis was measured by established markers using both western blot analysis and immunochemistry. Angiogenesis in a xenograft mouse model carring SKOV3 cells was evaluated by color Doppler ultrasound and immunohistochemistry.RESULT: Multiple lines of evidence indicated that fisetin and fisetin micelles induce apoptosis in ovarian cancer cells in a dose-dependent manner. Histological analysis, terminal deoxynucleotidyltransferase-mediated nick-end labeling assay, western blot, immunohistochemical detection and microvessel density detection demonstrated that fisetin and fisetin micelles induced increased tumor apoptosis, proliferation suppression and antiangiogenesis activities.CONCLUSION: As far as we know, the present study is the first time to demonstrate the potency of both fisetin and fisetin micelles inducing apoptosis in ovarian cancer cells. Further studies will be needed to validate the therapeutic potential of fisetin and fisetin micelles in ovarian cancer treatment.

Shikonin induces mitochondria-mediated apoptosis and attenuates the epithelial-mesenchymal transition in A2780-CR cells. "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

PMID:  Oncol Lett. 2018 Apr ;15(4):5417-5424. Epub 2018 Feb 15. PMID: 29563994 Abstract Title:  Shikonin induces mitochondria-mediated apoptosis and attenuates epithelial-mesenchymal transition in cisplatin-resistant human ovarian cancer cells. Abstract:  Cisplatin-based chemotherapy often results in the development of chemoresistance when used to treat ovarian cancer, which is difficult to overcome. The present study investigated the cytotoxic and anti-migratory effects of shikonin, a naphthoquinone compound, on cisplatin-resistant human ovarian cancer A2780 cells (A2780-CR). Shikonin had a potent dose-dependent cytotoxic effect on A2780-CR cells, with 9M shikonin treatment reducing A2780-CR cell viability by 50%, validate using an MTT assay. Shikonin induced apoptosis, as evidenced by the increased number of apoptotic bodies, following staining with Hoechst 33342, and terminal deoxynucleotidyl cell transferase dUTP nick end labeling-positive cells following treatment. Flow cytometry and fluorescent microscope imaging, following JC-1 staining, revealed that shikonin increased mitochondrial membrane depolarization. Also it altered the levels of apoptosis-associated proteins, leading to diminished expression of B cell lymphoma-2 (Bcl-2), enhanced expression of Bcl-associated X, and cleavage of caspase-9 and -3, as revealed using western blot analysis. Shikonin activated mitogen-activated protein kinases; while treatment with specific inhibitors of these kinases attenuated the decline in cell viability induced by shikonin treatment. In addition, the cell migration assay and western blot analysis indicated that shikonin decreased the migratory capacity of A2780-CR cells via the upregulation of epithelial-cadherin and downregulation of neural-cadherin. Taken together, the results of the present study indicated that shikonin induces mitochondria-mediated apoptosis and attenuates the epithelial-mesenchymal transition in A2780-CR cells.

It's Official: US Is Seeking Death Penalty In Drug Cases - But Not For Big Pharma

By Brandon TurbevilleNatural Blaze

When Donald Trump suggested imposing the death penalty in drug-related cases, many people thought he was just spouting off at the mouth. Unfortunately, his statements were not just typical Trump talk. They are now official Justice Department policy.

U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions instructed Federal Prosecutors on March 21 to begin seeking the death penalty in drug-related cases where it is appropriate.

Sessions and his Justice Department are claiming that the policy is being implemented to counter the opioid epidemic. Sessions mandate comes after Donald Trump called for executing opioid dealers and traffickers and for harsher sentences in regards to trafficking.


Fisetin exerts antioxidant and neuroprotective effects in multiple mutant hsod1 models of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

PMID:  Neuroscience. 2018 Mar 17. Epub 2018 Mar 17. PMID: 29559385 Abstract Title:  Fisetin exerts antioxidant and neuroprotective effects in multiple mutant hsod1 models of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis by activating erk. Abstract:  Oxidative stress exhibits a central role in the course of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), a progressive neurodegenerative disease commonly found to include a copper/zinc superoxide dismutase (SOD1) gene mutation. Fisetin, a natural antioxidant, has shown benefits in varied neurodegenerative diseases. The possible effect of fisetin in ALS has not been clarified as of yet. We investigated whether fisetin affected mutant hSOD1 ALS models. Three different hSOD1-related mutant models were used: Drosophila expressing mutant hSOD1, hSOD1NSC34 cells, and transgenic mice. Fisetin treatment provided neuroprotection as demonstrated by an improved survival rate, attenuated motor impairment, reduced ROS damage and regulated redox homeostasis compared with those in controls. Furthermore, fisetin increased the expression of phosphorylated ERK and upregulated antioxidant factors, which were reversed by MEK/ERK inhibition. Finally, fisetin reduced the levels of both mutant and wild-type hSOD1 in vivo and in vitro, as well as the levels of detergent-insoluble hSOD1 proteins. The results indicate that fisetin protects cells from ROS damage and improves the pathological behaviors caused by oxidative stress in disease models related to SOD1 gene mutations probably by activating ERK, thereby providing a potential treatment for ALS.

Nightmare Zoo Makes Orangutans 'Fight' In Boxing Ring "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

The crowd roars and a bell rings to mark the start of the match.

The boxers run around the ring in circles, pummeling one another with their oversized gloves until one opponent eventually flops to the ground in defeat. Dancers in skimpy bikinis twirl and jump around on the sidelines as loud music plays to celebrate the winner.

It might sound like a typical weekend boxing match but at Bangkok Safari World in Thailand, the performers are all orangutans.

Credit: Youtube/See The World

Over the past few years, multiple tourist videos have surfaced featuring the cruel shows, with the most recent being posted just a few days ago.

Before the 30-minute show begins, the apes are typically made to fly down to the stage from the rafters on a zipline and play in a band with instruments.

As two orangutans box one another, another group of apes above the ring appears to throw trash down onto them. All are dressed in human clothing.

Lis Key, communications manager for International Animal Rescue, has one word for the show: sickening.

Given the appalling conditions at many zoos in Thailand, its unlikely that the trainers adopt humane training methods, Key told The Dodo. These are not behaviors that come easily to orangutans and its frightening to imagine how they have been made to perform these sickening stunts.

Pterostilbene may serve as a potential therapeutic candidate for the treatment of acute kidney injury induced by sepsis. "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

PMID:  Exp Ther Med. 2018 Apr ;15(4):3551-3555. Epub 2018 Jan 30. PMID: 29545882 Abstract Title:  Pterostilbene attenuates acute kidney injury in septic mice. Abstract:  Acute kidney injury (AKI) is a severe complication of sepsis with a high mortality and morbidity. Pterostilbene (Pte) has been suggested to confer anti-apoptotic and anti-inflammatory effects. In the current study, the effects of Pte on AKI were evaluated in septic mice. Cecal ligation and puncture surgery was performed to induce sepsis. The results suggested that Pte administration significantly decreased the levels of serum urea nitrogen and creatinine, and improved the survival rate of septic mice. Additionally, the renal injury induced by sepsis was attenuated by pterostilbene treatment. Notably, pterostilbene reduced Bcl-2-associated X protein expression, and levels of interleukin-1 and tumor necrosis factor-, and upregulated B-cell lymphoma 2 expression. The results indicate that pterostilbene may serve as a potential therapeutic candidate for the treatment of AKI induced by sepsis.

Pterostilbene reduced cardiac oxidative stress and inflammation in diabetic rats. "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

PMID:  Cardiovasc Drugs Ther. 2018 Mar 20. Epub 2018 Mar 20. PMID: 29556862 Abstract Title:  Pterostilbene Decreases Cardiac Oxidative Stress and Inflammation via Activation of AMPK/Nrf2/HO-1 Pathway in Fructose-Fed Diabetic Rats. Abstract:  PURPOSE: Oxidative stress has a pivotal role in the pathogenesis of diabetes-associated cardiovascular problems, which has remained a primary cause of the increased morbidity and mortality in diabetic patients. It is of paramount importance to prevent the diabetes-associated cardiac complications by reducing oxidative stress with the help of nutritional or pharmacological agents. Pterostilbene (PT), the primary antioxidant in blueberries, has recently gained attention for its promising health benefits in metabolic and cardiac diseases. However, the mechanism whereby PT reduces diabetic cardiac complications is currently unknown.METHODS: Sprague-Dawley rats were fed with 65% fructose diet with or without PT (20 mg kg day) for 8 weeks. Heart rate and blood pressure were measured by tail-cuff apparatus. Real-time PCR and western blot experiments were executed to quantify the expression levels of mRNA and protein, respectively.RESULTS: Fructose-fed rats demonstrated cardiac hypertrophy, hypertension, enhanced myocardial oxidative stress, inflammation and increased NF-B expression. Administration of PT significantly decreased cardiac hypertrophy, hypertension, oxidative stress, inflammation, NF-B expression and NLRP3 inflammasome. We demonstrated that PT improved mitochondrial biogenesis as evidenced by increased protein expression of PGC-1, complex III andcomplex V in fructose-fed diabetic rats. Further, PT increased protein expressions of AMPK, Nrf2, HO-1 in cardiac tissues, which may account for the prevention of cardiac oxidative stress and inflammation in fructose-fed rats.CONCLUSIONS: Collectively, PT reduced cardiac oxidative stress and inflammation in diabetic rats through stimulation of AMPK/Nrf2/HO-1 signalling.

Wilhelm Reich: Climax To Happiness! "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Reich__WilhelmOn the 24th of March 1897, eccentric psychoanalyst Wilhelm Reich was born in the village of Dobzau, part of the old Austro-Hungarian empire (present-day Ukraine). An anti-Fascist Marxist, Reich is primarily considered the inventor of the notion of sexual revolution who coined the phrase in the 1930s in order to illustrate his belief that a true political revolution would be possible only once sexual repression was overthrown. His books were burned in Germany by the Nazis and then again years later by the Americans, who imprisoned him and set fire to six tons of his publications by court order in one of the most notable examples of censorship in history. Now that is enough to ignite anyones curiosity about the fuss he created in the scientific, as well as socio-political arenas of his time!

In the late 1920s, Reich developed his theory of the orgasm, holding it as the most important form of release in human life, capable of transforming both the self and society. Freud thought this a grotesque oversimplification, but Reich came to believe that he had hit upon the perfect mechanism for liberating humanity. He pledged his loyalty to both psychoanalysis and socialism only to meet as much resistance among Marxists as among Freudians. (David Allyn, review of Adventures in the Orgasmatron: How the Sexual Revolution Came to America by Christopher Turner, The Journal of American History, Vol. 98, No. 4, March 2012).

Reich was a sexual campaigner who believed that a truly satisfying orgasm could determine the difference between sickness and health and, on a much wider scale, between political oppression and social liberation. He actually thought that it was the definitive cure from all evils, be it corporeal or ideological, such as the fascism that caused him to flee from Europe to America. In his study ...


Hedge Fund Manager dressed as Nurse eligible for NHS payrise "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Following the proposed pay award to NHS staff, calls are coming from The City of London, demanding increases of between 95% and 140% in their basic salaries and commissions.

Myles Crabbe, a futures trader with brokers, Winchester and Palmerston, said:  Look, if normal people like nurses et cetera are getting a bigger wedge, going forward, then why shouldnt we? Theyre not used to having money and most probably theyll only spend it on pizzas and fags, or maybe rubbish like keeping body and soul together and a grubby little roof over their heads, whereas if we get more dosh well be able to upgrade all of our cars from BMWs to Mercs, buy a second holiday home in Tuscany and visit Hestons new Broadgate place at least twice a week.

And there is support for Crabbes position in Westminster from Chancellor Philip Hammond who told MPs:  The City does very important work and is the backbone of Britains, nay the worlds economy.  What our markets and traders do is of immense global importance.  So we must ask ourselves when did we last flog off some of our nationally-owned assets to allow them and their mates to make a killing at the expense of the man in the street?

Meanwhile Staff Nurse, Brenda Allen, told BBC:  We welcome this long overdue move and see it as only the beginning of introducing some kind of equality between different sections of society, weve a long way to go.

You see!  Give these people an inch and theyll want to take a mile, added Mr Crabbe following Ms. Allens remarks.

Ramazzini Institute Rat Study Confirms National Toxicology Project Results: Cancers From Mobile Phone Frequencies "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

By Catherine J. Frompovich

Researchers at the Ramazzini Institute in Bologna, Italy, published duplicating research results and data regarding brain and heart tumors in Sprague-Dawley rats exposed to mobile phone radiofrequencies (RFs) from prenatal life to their natural death, similar to what the National Toxicology Project research performed [1] and found to be scientifically factual.

The report, which I encourage everyone to readespecially States Public Utility Commissioners and the Federal Communications Commissionto learn and to understand what you apparently dont know about electromagnetic frequencies transmitted using microwaves and radiofrequencies, specifically from every-day, ubiquitous cell phones, iPhones, etc.

The Conclusion of the Ramazzini study states:

The RI findings on far field exposure to RFR are consistent with and reinforce the results of the NTP study on near field exposure, as both reported an increase in the incidence of tumors of the brain and heart in RFR-exposed Sprague-Dawley rats. These tumors are of the same histotype of those observed in some epidemiological studies on cell phone users. These experimental studies provide sufficient evidence to call for the reevaluation of IARC conclusions regarding the carcinogenic potential of RFR in humans.

Yesterday, the Institute of Contemporary Art (ICA) at the University of Pennsylvania became the first museum to be certified by Working Artists and the Greater Economy (W.A.G.E.), the activist organization that seeks to ensure that artists are fairly compensated for their work. Though many smaller nonprofit spaces, artist-run galleries, and even some museum exhibitions and programs have previously been certified by W.A.G.E., the ICA is the first museum fully certified by the organization.

There was a lot of conversation, ICA Director Amy Sadao told Hyperallergic over the phone. The director of curatorial affairs and the chief curator, Anthony Elms and Robert Chaney, really took the bull by the horns in terms of what does that mean for our budgeting process, what does that mean for our plans, what does that mean for how many projects we do?

The W.A.G.E. certification process involves calculating fees for artists based on a given program or organizations operating budget. The ICA, with its full-time staff of 25 and annual operating budget of $4.8 million, is by far the largest organization to complete the process, which required it to track all its fee payments and meet minimum W.A.G.E. standards for at least a year.

For me, by far, the biggest challenge was the learning curve on both our side and on the side of W.A.G.E. to figure out what things were overlooked or didnt distinctly sync with the structure as W.A.G.E. had it set out, the ICAs chief curator Anthony Elms wrote Hyperallergic in an email. All these differences had an impact on what was and was not possible, and also what the sco...

According to a recent report by BitMEX, the number of Bitcoin transactions being processed using SegWit has been consistently higher than the number of Bitcoin Cash transactions processed. However, the total gap between the two is only around 20 percent.

SegWit Adoption Consistently Outpaces Bitcoin Cash

The figures have been compiled by the research division of the cryptocurrency exchange BitMEX. They were published earlier today on the companys blog section of their website.

According to BitMEXs research, there have been a total of 6.1 million SegWit transactions versus 4.88 million Bitcoin Cash transactions since the hardfork in Bitcoin last August. This equates to around 20 percent more transactions using SegWit than on the entire Bitcoin Cash blockchain.

The company were keen to highlight that Bitcoin Cash did have an additional months head start, however. When this is taken into account, BitMEX argues that the cumulative transaction volume is over 31 percent more for SegWit. However, it is also pointed out in the report that both of these numbers could be subject to manipulation.

Todays report also states that there was a brief spike in the use of Bitcoin Cash when it was first launched. Meanwhile, the growth of SegWit adoption has been much more gradual with large industry players such as CoinBase taking several months to implement the upgrade.

It was in October when the number of transactions occurring using SegWit finally exceeded those on the Bitcoin Cash blockchain. This has remained the case ever since.

SegWit and Bitcoin Cash were both launched last August with SegWit taking around a month longer to become properly available to users. The Bitcoin community were so bitterly divided over how to scale the network that no compromise could be reached. Those who wanted larger blocks went with Bitcoin Cash and those who favoured second layer scaling techniques argued against a blocksize increase on the grounds of decentralisation.

According to BitMEX, SegWit makes the Bitcoin blockchain around 41 percent more efficient. This, they argue, should mean that even if no other users made the change to SegWit should result in a saving of 41 percent on fees. This number becomes even greater as more users make the transition and there becomes even more space in each block for transactions.

The BitMEX report concludes by stating:

SegWit has begun to m...

Pleiadians are beings of Love and Light. Most of the surface population is so enmeshed in the dysfunctional state of affairs on this planet that it is difficult for them to believe that beings that are full of Love and Light without an agenda really exist. But they do. In fact, beings like that are the majority in this Galaxy. And Pleiadians are among them.

They were consciously trying to densify one of their plasma home planets into the physical dense matter and the planet exploded. Fragments of their exploded home world scattered throughout the Galaxy and some of them hit the Earth as Moldavites

They understand the secrets of immortality, but rarely choose to keep the same physical body for more than 1000 years. They are very positive, joyful and sensual. Erotic love is one of the most important aspects of their lives and they know ho...


Alarm Sounds After EU Regulators Greenlight Bayer-Monsanto #MergerFromHell "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

After weeks of speculation, chemical giant Bayer and biotech behemoth Monsanto have cleared a significant regulatory hurdle in their bid to consolidate into one company through a multibillion-dollar deal that critics are calling the merger from Hell.

The coming together of these two is a marriage made in hellbad for farmers, bad for consumers, and bad for our countryside.
Adrian Bebb, Friends of the Earth Europe

Ahead of its April deadline, on Wednesday the European Commissionthe European Unions executive armapproved Bayers proposed takeover of U.S.-based Monsanto, claiming that concessions made by the companies alleviated competition concerns that critics have raised with regulators in both Europe and the United States.

Although the Commissions decision is a major win for the  companies, U.S. regulators have not yet weighed in. Still, Wednesdays announcement alarmed activists that have spent months protesting the deal.



Extensive impact of non-antibiotic drugs on human gut bacteria. "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

PMID:  Nature. 2018 Mar 19. Epub 2018 Mar 19. PMID: 29555994 Abstract Title:  Extensive impact of non-antibiotic drugs on human gut bacteria. Abstract:  A few commonly used non-antibiotic drugs have recently been associated with changes in gut microbiome composition, but the extent of this phenomenon is unknown. Here, we screened more than 1,000 marketed drugs against 40 representative gut bacterial strains, and found that 24% of the drugs with human targets, including members of all therapeutic classes, inhibited the growth of at least one strain in vitro. Particular classes, such as the chemically diverse antipsychotics, were overrepresented in this group. The effects of human-targeted drugs on gut bacteria are reflected on their antibiotic-like side effects in humans and are concordant with existing human cohort studies. Susceptibility to antibiotics and human-targeted drugs correlates across bacterial species, suggesting common resistance mechanisms, which we verified for some drugs. The potential risk of non-antibiotics promoting antibiotic resistance warrants further exploration. Our results provide a resource for future research on drug-microbiome interactions, opening new paths for side effect control and drug repurposing, and broadening our view of antibiotic resistance.

Dog Who Was Given Cocaine By Kids Gets The Best New Life "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Lying motionless on the sidewalk in front of a known drug house, Suzi was barely conscious.

Onlookers told animal control officers that they believed that neighborhood kids had injected the dog with drugs, and a drug test confirmed their suspicion.

Both cocaine and THC were found in her system.

Suzi was rushed to Faithful Friends Animal Society, where the veterinary team immediately hooked her up to IV fluids in an effort to flush the drugs out of her system. They determined she was most likely only a year old.

When she first arrived, she was unable to walk, stand, eat or drink, Kevin Rentz, marketing manager for Faithful Friends Animal Society, told The Dodo. Our vets had never seen a mistreatment dealing with narcotics like this. It was heartbreaking.

For the next two days, Suzi continued on a steady stream of fluids to help flush the drugs out, while vets kept her comfortable inside her crate.

She could barely hold her head up and was barely responsive, Rentz said. You could tell she did not know what was going on.

Luckily, after just over two days of around-the-clock care, Suzi rounded the corner of her recovery and captivated the vet team with her sweet personality in the process.

She stole the hearts of all the vets and techs here, Rentz said. Once the drugs had started leaving her system, you could see her personality perk up....


Report: Water Scarcity Will Make Life Miserable for Nearly 6 Billion People by 2050 "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Rapidly dwindling supplies, increased demand, industrial agriculture, changing climate, contamination, and an exponential world population explosion comprise just a few of the multitudinous factors that without drastic changes focused on natural solutions will find nearly six billion people in the grips of a punishing water shortage by 2050.

Running out of potable water may smack of dystopia, but will be Earths reality thanks in majority part to humanitys dismal record of working against, rather than in tandem with, nature within a mere three decades, according to the 2018 World Water Development Report from the United Nations.

To wit, that harrowing prospect has cruelly teased residents of Cape Town, South Africa, on multiple occasions, with a tentative date for Zero Day a term employed to describe the day fresh drinking water slows to a trickle, and will thus be rationed and guarded by military forces recently pushed back from July 9 this year to an as-yet assessed date in 2019, after unexpected rainfall minimally squelch persistent drought conditions.

At present, Cape Towns residents may use no more than 13.2 gallons of water per day, each or, roughly enough for a brief shower and three toilet flushes, observed the Wall Street Journal earlier this month painting a frightening portent for the moment so-called Zero Day actually arrives.

Despite a steady and relatively stable 1 percent annual increase in global demand for fresh water, the planets more than 7.6 billion inhabitants and counting have strained supplies beyond sustainable levels, says the U.N. And while large-scale agriculture remains the biggest offender, consumer and industrial demand is projected to outpace it in the coming decades ....

Betulinic acid induces cell death by necrosis in Trypanosoma cruzi. "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

PMID:  Acta Trop. 2017 Oct ;174:72-75. Epub 2017 Jul 6. PMID: 28690148 Abstract Title:  Betulinic acid induces cell death by necrosis in Trypanosoma cruzi. Abstract:  Chagas' disease is a neglected disease caused by the protozoan parasite Trypanosoma cruzi and constitutes a serious health problem worldwide. The treatment is limited, with variable efficacy of benznidazole and nifurtimox. Betulinic Acid (BA), a triterpene, can be found in medicinal herbs and has a wide variety of biological and pharmacological activities. The objective was to evaluate betulinic acid effects on the cell death mechanism in Trypanosoma cruzi strain Y. BA inhibited the growth of epimastigotes in periods of 24h (IC=73.43M), 48h (IC=119.8M) and 72h (IC=212.2M) of incubation; of trypomastigotes (IC=51.88M) in periods of 24h and intracellular amastigotes (IC=25.94M) in periods of 24 and 48h of incubation, no toxicity on LLC-MKcells at the concentrations used. Analysis of the possible mechanism of parasite cell death showed alterations in mitochondrial membrane potential, alterations in cell membrane integrity, an increase in the formation of reactive oxygen species and increase swelling of the reservosomes. In conclusion, betulinic acid was be able to inhibition all developmental forms of Trypanosoma cruzi Y strain with necrotic mechanism and involvement of mitochondrial membrane potential alteration and increase in reactive oxygen species.

Artists in Seven South American Cities Reflect on Past Dictatorships "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Radio Conversa (photo by Observatorio de Poticas Sociales, courtesy the Goethe Institute)

BUENOS AIRES  Dictatorships and armed conflicts have been all too familiar in South Americas recent histories. To take stock of these experiences, in 2016 the Goethe Institut initiated a regional project in which artists were invited to reflect upon memory and its loss, generating a variety of projects in seven cities across the continent. Artists have tackled essential questions such as: What do we remember, as individuals and a society? And, what have we forgotten? How will we remember in the future? Is memory something fixed or continuously changing, shaped by the present? Thanks to the project, Montevideo, Santiago de Chile, Rio de Janeiro, So Paulo, Bogot, Lima, and Buenos Aires have become sites to rethink these histories and how they will be remembered in the future.

The project The Future of Memory: Poetics of Memory and Forgetfulness in South America originated in Bogot, just after the peace agreement was signed between the Colombian government and Revolutionary Armed Forces a year and a half ago. The people of Colombia had suffered violence for several decades, leaving generations more divided than united, said Oscar Moreno Escarraga, one of the artists in the project, in an interview with the Deutsche Welle. The only way to counteract this is by talking to and knowing the other, Escarraga suggests with his project Radio Conversa.

This is the second in a series by Aaron van Wirdum focusing on real people who use cryptocurrencies. Read about his earlier experiences in Italy here: "Real Users": In This Mountain Town, Everyone Knows About Bitcoin.

The straight stone road from the partially crumbled city wall to the scaffolded church in the center of the central Italian town of Norcia is empty. It glimmers a bit from the rain; the weather is unusually wet for this region today. Tourists and day-trippers that would usually be strolling around the historic town center on Saturday afternoons like these are nowhere to be seen.

Bad luck for Ilaria and Lorenzo. The couple both in their thirties, both wearing thick coats, scarves and beanies to keep themselves warm set up a small mobile bar near the end of the street, under a white marquee; the inside is decorated with pictures of flowers. Its all part of a local street market festival.

There, they sell saffron and beer produced with saffron, produced from the thin reddish stalks plucked from the crocus. Its a delicacy, Lorenzo explains, as he hands out taster-sized plastic cups with beer. Pound-for-pound among the most expensive products in the world, he says.

Its been almost 18 months since the Norcia area was struck with a seismic shock of 6.2 on the Richter scale: an earthquake that many of the old brick homes typical of the Mediterranean countryside could not withstand. Whole street blocks had collapsed, claiming hundreds of casualties.

Google Partners With Corporate Media to Defeat Independent Journalism "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

(MPN) Mountain View, California  Search engine and advertising monolith Google continued to press its offensive against alternative media this week with an announcement unveiling a new $300 million project called the Google News Initiative.

The initiative encompasses a range of new projects announced by the tech giant, which has long been accused of enjoying a monopoly position and of siphoning off digital advertising revenue from traditional news publishers.

Google sees it differently, however, and asserted in a press statement announcing the initiative that it paid $12.6 billion to partners while driving 10 billion clicks a month to publishers websites for free. The company is now promising to continue working with publishers to elevate accurate, quality content and stem the flow of misinformation and disinformation.

The move will likely drive the stake further into the heart of independent media while merging Silicon Valley with mainstream publishers traded on Wall Street and aligned with the agendas of beltway politicians in Washington.

Marginalizing Dissident Voices En Masse

According to Google:

The commitments were making through the Google News Initiative demonstrate that news and quality journalism is [sic] a top priority for Google. We know that success can only be achieved by working together, and we look forward to collaborating with the news industry to build a stronger future for journalism.

Launched in a partnership with a range of traditional corporate media giants including The Washington PostThe New York TimesFinancial Times, and U.S. newspaper giant Gannett the project promises to combat so-called fake news and misinformation. Many reasonably fear, based on recent trends, that this will mean the further marginalization of non-hegemonic left-wing and conservative media as well as a sort of death by algorithm for already-struggling publishers who once flourished, prior to the hysteria over alleged Russian interference and propaganda in the 2016 elections.

Binance Seeks New Home in Maltas Fintech-Friendly Environment "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Binance in Malta

After facing crackdowns in China and being issued a warning by regulators in Japan, cryptocurrency exchange Binance is now seeking a home on the crypto-friendly island nation of Malta, the companys CEO Zhao Changpeng told Bloomberg.  

Malta is known for extending open arms to fintech and blockchain technology. Malta Prime Minister Joseph Muscat underscored that policy when he shared the Bloomberg piece on Twitter, stating, We aim to be the global trailblazers in the regulation of blockchain-based businesses and the jurisdiction of quality and choice for world class fintech companies.

Since it was founded in Hong Kong in 2017, Binance has grown rapidly to become the largest exchange in the world by trading volume. Establishing itself in Malta could open doors to even larger growth. Currently, the exchange is negotiating with banks in Malta to set up a formal banking partnership, Zhao told Bloomberg.

If it succeeds, that means Binance, which now offers only crypto-to-crypto trading pairs, will be able to offer crypto-to-fiat trading pairs. In that sense, Binance would operate similar to U.S.-based exchange Coinbase, where users have direct links to their bank accounts and can withdraw and deposit fiat.

Banking relationships are essential to the livelihood of exchanges. Without the ability to allow customers to move in and out of the fiat world, exchanges turn to stable tokens, like tether (USDT) or trueUSD (TUSD), as a fiat alternative and to protect against market volatility. But stablecoins present their own class of problems. For instance,....

11 Things You Need To Know When Loving A Highly Sensitive Person "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Feelings are incredibly subjective. What one person experiences is different than what others go through. While we have no real way to quantify our emotions, we can compare and see the differences.

There are people that experience life in a deeper sense than others. They lack the formations that disconnect and protect them from the magnitude of their feelings. They don't have a way to dial down their feelings.

These highly sensitive People (HSP) can be hard to be in a relationship with. Their sensitivity and introverted ways can make it hard to reach and relate to them.

1. They Have Amplified Feelings

They feel everything more deeply than others. They don't have a way to disconnect, so what others can just shrug off and not take personally, HSP's take straight to their core.

This makes everything very intense for them and the people close to them. Pay attention and respect their feelings.

2. They Need Their Alone Time To Recharge

They prefer to be alone and when they are around others they spend energy as opposed to absorbing energy. They pick up on every little external stimuli, and react to it.

They feel other's emotions and feel bombarded in large, noisy crowds. After being in public they need time to recharge and re align themselves. Give them time to replenish their internal resources.

3. They Are Intuitive Towards Your Emotions

They are very observant. HSP's can pick up non verbal communication and individual vibes with ease. Loving a highly sensitive and empathic person means they will call you out on your feelings and thoughts.

You won't be able to keep secrets from them. Be prepared to be in the spotlight even when you don't want to talk about it.

4. Romance Isn't Just A Game

HSP's take romance very seriously. When they consent to making love, they are trustin...

While Ace is up 157%, BTC could only muster a 0.2% gain helping slow down the altcoins slide. Generally speaking, NEO, LTC, EOS, IOTA and Lumens are better off than yesterdays uniform drop. Why not? With Binance announcement and quashing of potential JFSA FUDs, cryptocurrencies should fair relatively well. Binance will instead shift their focus to Europe and already plans to open an office in Malta.

Basing our preview from the charts, we expect some gains in NEO, LTC and even IOTA whose candlestick by the way has a long lower wick hinting of bull pressure.

In NEO, our support lies at around $55. Anyway, if this week is technically influential, then prices should end above last weeks highs and beckon buys.

Lets have a look at these charts:

XLM/USD (Stellar Lumens)

Stellar Lumens Technical AnalysisXLM/USD Bittrex 4HR Chart for March 24, 2018

Even though we cannot see strong movements in the daily chart, there is a little bit of movement in the 4HR chart.

Apparently, Lumens prices are reacting at the break out level. This might be because of Stellar Lumenss announcement of their Lightning Network plans.

Anyway, technically buyers are rejecting further depreciation and with a stochastic buy signal at break out level of $0.20, prices might find support today.

Im net bullish and as long as there is a confluence of buy signal stochastic buy signal in the both time frames under our focus, yesterdays forecast wont change.

However, if sellers gear up and drive prices past last weeks lows of $0.15 then I shall reconsider my skew.

Regina Spektor Reads The Everyday Enchantment of Music by Mark Strand

Without music life would be a mistake, Nietzsche proclaimed in 1889. Walt Whitman celebrated it as the profoundest expression of nature and Aldous Huxley as an expression of the blessedness lying at the heart of things. Philosopher Susanne Langer considered it a laboratory for feeling and time, whose mysterious power both eclipses and illuminates all the other arts.

Among the chorus of great writers who have extolled musics supreme and singular power is the Pulitzer-winning poet Mark Strand (April 11, 1934November 29, 2014) in a splendid prose poem titled The Everyday Enchantment of Music, included in his indispensable Collected Poems (public library).

In this recording from the annual Poetry & the Creative Mind event at Lincoln Center hosted by The Academy of American Poets, Regina Spektor one of the great musicians of our time brings Strands masterpiece to life with such loveliness and tenderness:



How the Development of the Camera Changed Our World "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

These days, thanks to smartphones, almost everyone has a camera with them at any given moment. And, there is no doubt about the impact of photography on the entire world. Rewinding time, before selfies were a cultural norm, before geniuses like Cindy Sherman and Andrea Gursky elevated photography to an art form, someone had to invent this piece of technology. So, who invented the camera? And how has it evolved over time into the piece of equipment we now know? Let's take a look at how this revolutionary invention changed how we document life.

The Pinhole Camera and Camera Obscura

Ancestors of the photographic camera, both camera obscura and the pinhole camera date to back to the ancient Greeks and Chinese. In fact, Chinese philosopher Mozi, who lived during the Han dynasty (circa 468 circa 391 BC), was the first person to write down the principles of camera obscura. Ancient Greek philosopher Aristotle also wrote his musings about the phenomenon in his book Problems, wondering why the sun appears circular even when projected through a rectangular hole.

So, what is camera obscura? This basic principle is a natural optical phenomenon where an image on one side of a wallor screenis projected through a hole onto a surface opposite the opening. The resulting projection is upside down. Camera obscura, a term coined in the 16th century, also refers to a box, tent, or room set up for such projections.

Detoxification : Opening Doors To Spiritual Energies "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Before knowing what detoxification is, we need to know what the toxins are, which we need to detox.

Every day we eat potential toxins into our body, breathe them into our hearts, and track them into our homes and life without ever really knowing where theyll end up or how much damage theyll do when they get there! In fact, if you could peek inside your body youd find fire-retardant chemicals, heavy metals, pesticides, plastic particles, and dozens of other residues of modern life.

Detoxification is the removal of toxic substances from the human body.

Human body requires detoxing to allow all spiritual energies to flow in and guide us to release trapped and blocked energy emotions, beliefs and thought, detoxification (or detox for short) opens the way for cleansing on all levels body, mind and soul.

Detoxification shows positive results along with your spiritual practices. And it is important to detox our body on a regular basis in order to keep the balance with nature and our self.

One very interesting fact about detoxification is that detoxification programs are an inseparable part of all the addiction treatment options. Whenever you go for consultations in addiction treatment centers, you will most probably find the counselors telling you about detoxification.

The recent Detox Craze has reached phenomenal proportions, with manufacturers frantically marketing products that promise instant cleansing and purification, in an attempt to fulfill -and obviously profit from- such an overwhelming market demand.  There are a lot of commercial products claiming to detox your body instantly. The quest for the ideal detox tool or program is on, with a mind-boggling array of products to choose from: Detox supplements, colon cleansing aids, detox foot baths and detox patches. The list is endless! And a real waste of money and time!

In our frantic search for the ultimate detox, weve overlooked the ideal detox aid. A natural resource, easily available and also the ELIXIR of life: Water.

If you ask me for the best, cheap and effective detox technique then Ill suggest you to go for WATER detoxification. Our bodies have livers and kidneys to remove toxins and other waste material. It just needed extra help in the form of water.

There are some natural detox that supports the bodys cleansing and elimination capacity like:

After twice suggesting the elimination of the National Endowment for the Arts and the National Endowment for the Humanities, which are two of the largest sources of federal art funding, President Trump has signed an omnibus spending bill that slightly increases funding for both agencies.

The NEA and the NEH will each receive about $153 million in fiscal year 2018 around $3 million more than their 2017 budgets of about $149 million.

Trump previously threatened to veto the $1.3 trillion spending bill, in part because it did not fully fund a wall on the US-Mexico border. I will never sign another bill like this again, Trump said.

In a short statement shared with Hyperallergic, the NEA said, The National Endowment for the Arts is deeply appreciative of the support of members of Congress.  The spending bill received bipartisan support, including the vocal support from a number of key Republicans, in the House and Senate.

GhostMiner: Crypto-Jacking Software Removes Other Miners so It Can Mine Monero "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Security researchers at Minerva Labs have uncovered a new strain of cryptocurrency mining malware, dubbed GhostMiner, which uses fileless malware delivery techniques to land on systems. What makes it particularly remarkable is that if other crypto-jacking malware is already in the system, it will fight to remove it so it can mine Monero itself.

That said, in spite of this novel and advanced technique, Ghostminer has as of yet failed to earn any substantial revenue for its creators: after a three-week-long campaign, GhostMiner only racked up 1.03 Monero, which as of now is worth just over $200. This, of course, is nothing compared to other operations, like the Jenkins miner, which made over $3 million in Monero earlier this year.

Advanced Techniques

While GhostMiner, as of yet, has not been a financial success, the malware is certainly not a technical fiasco.

First off, this approach is the first fileless crypto-mining malware strain detected. The fileless technique has become quite popular with malware in recent years, allowing operations to run malicious code directly from memory, without leaving files on disk, therefore leaving fewer clues for antivirus engines to detect.

Further, GhostMiner employs other advanced techniques to hunt down competing miners and shutting down their processes. These include killing running miners by using PowerShells Stop-Process-force command with the aid of a hard-coded blacklist, stop and delete blacklisted miners, and even removing miners which are run as blacklisted scheduled tasks.

As for targeting, GhostMiner can infect systems running MSSQL, phpMyAdmin, and Oracle WebLogic servers. But according to Minerva Labs experts, only the WebLogic infection system was active when they analyzed the recent campaign.

While the techniques utilized by GhostMiner arent necessarily new by themselves, this is the first time they have been used together in one malicious application. And one things for sure, they illustrate that GhostScripts operators put a lot of thought into assembling their code, which shows just how far malware developers are willing to go to earn their illicit gains.

Colombia scraps Amazon highway plans due to deforestation concerns "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Colombias President Juan Manuel Santos declared earlier this month that a controversial highway project that would cut through the Amazon will not be completed. Santos pointed at rampant deforestation and potentially irreversible environmental impacts to a sensitive ecological corridor near three national parks if the highway project were followed through to completion. The Marginal de la Selva highway is part of $1 billion infrastructure project that would have opened a trade route for heavy land cargo to pass from Venezuela to Ecuador through Colombia without having to enter the treacherous Andes mountains. Santos told local newspaper El Tiempo that the highway project is not going to be done because it would be completely counterproductive from the environmental point of view. The announcement was made as environmentalists decried a massive increase in deforestation in the region around the proposed highway project, which directly borders three national parks. An aerial photo shows deforestation associated with a roadway in Colombias Amazon. Photo courtesy of CDA Following a historic 2016 peace agreement with Colombias former largest guerrilla group the FARC, the power vacuum left by the demobilized rebels exacerbated deforestation as land speculators flooded into the area to clear tracts of forest for speculative cattle ranching and palm oil projects. According to environmental government agency Corporation for Sustainable Development of the North-East Amazon (CDA), many of these speculators are connected to illegal armed groups. Wilfredo Pachn, local CDA Director in San Jose de Guaviare, said property values can increase up to three times over

The wind of change blowing through Ghanas villages (commentary) "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Sefwi Wiawso doesnt feature in Ghanas tourist guides. Its main town, Wiawso, is little more than a single road albeit one bursting with vitality and color, with hawkers selling their wares and people milling about in animated conversations. But being off the beaten track or, more specifically, an eight-hour drive west of Ghanas capital city, Accra is no measure of the districts significance. So many of our natural resources come from this area: timber, cocoa, gold, food crops, says Raymond Ennin, an enthusiastic 30 year-old community activist with local environmental and resources NGO Civic Response. The region supports the rest of Ghana, but the people arent seeing enough of the benefits. Until now, most of the proceeds from sales of the natural resources harvested in Sefwi Wiawso have gone into a few pockets, Ennin explains as we drive out of Wiawso along undulating red dirt roads. We pass tropical forests where the vegetation is so dense it seems to be in a state of rapture. Heavy trucks laden with timber rumble by, deepening the crevices in the already rutted road. The trucks represent a tiny cog in the wheel of an industry that is crucial to Ghanas economic health, accounting for about 11 percent of export earnings. For decades, though, the timber sector has been rife with illegality and corruption. In 2004 alone it is estimated that Ghana lost more revenue from illegal logging $100 million (83,271,000) than it received in development aid. Endemic illegality

Brazil ignored U.N. letters warning of land defender threats, record killings "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Shocked members of the Akro-Gamellas indigenous group just after a brutal assault by Brazilian farmers in April 2017. Photo by Ruy Sposati / Cimi It has come to light only this month that the administration of Brazilian president Michel Temer failed to respond to two letters sent by United Nations rapporteurs in 2017 warning of pending threats to, and condemning the murders of, human rights activists in Minas Gerais and Par states. Thats according to the U.N. Human Rights office in Geneva. Last November, the U.N. warned about the threats six peasants and their families received in Conceio do Mato Dentro, Minas Gerais, after they opened a lawsuit against the operations of Anglo American Iron Ore Brazil S.A. in that state. The company is a subsidiary of Anglo American, a global mining firm based in London. The State Public Ministry (MPE), the independent public prosecutors office in Minas Gerais, had previously requested the inclusion of the laborers in the Protection Program of Human Rights Defenders, of the Secretariat of Rights of the Presidency in May, 2017. One of them, Lcio da Silva Pimenta, was reportedly threatened and expelled from his land several times without receiving compensation by representatives of Anglo American. The company did not respond to Mongabays request for comment. Anglo American of Brazil is currently waiting for licensing approval in order to begin the expansion of the Sapo iron mine, which is part of the Minas-Rio Project/System that connects the mine (located near the town of Conceio Mato Dentro), to the export terminal Port

Anti-Trump Mural Sparks ACLU Lawsuit and Public Art Dispute in New Orleans "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Late last year, New Orleans developer Neal Morris commissioned the local artist Cashy-D to paint a mural on his private property. On November 4, the artist completed the piece, which features text from the 2005 Access Hollywood recording, in which President Trump boasts of sexually assaulting women. In the mural, select nouns have been replaced by images, like emojis in a text message.

Ten days later, Morris received a letter from the citys Department of Safety and Permits faulting him for not following the proper permit process, demanding the murals removal, and threatening a maximum fine or jail time for each and every day the violation continues plus court costs as prescribed by law. Now, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) of Louisiana has filed a lawsuit on behalf of Morris against the City of New Orleans, alleging that it has violated his rights under the First and Fourteenth Amendments.

The ideal outcome is for the City to scrap its burdensome, confusing (and unconstitutional) permitting process for murals, Bruce Hamilton, a staff attorney at the ACLU of Louisiana who is representing Morris, told Hyperallergic.

Genipin modulates monoaminergic transmission and levels of brain-derived neurotrophic factor in rat model of depression. "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

PMID:  Neuroscience. 2014 Sep 5 ;275:365-73. Epub 2014 Jun 24. PMID: 24972301 Abstract Title:  Genipin is active via modulating monoaminergic transmission and levels of brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) in rat model of depression. Abstract:  Genipin, an important bioactive component from Gardenia jasminoides Eills, was demonstrated to possess antidepressant-like effects in a previous study. However, the molecular mechanism of antidepressant-like effects on genipin was not clear. The present study aimed to investigate the possible mechanism of antidepressant-like effects on genipin with a chronic unpredictable mild stress (CUMS)-induced depression model in rats. In CUMS-induced depressive rats, bodyweight and 1% sucrose consumption decreased significantly compared with the normal control group. Furthermore, these changes could be significantly reversed by genipin application. The levels of 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT), norepinephrine (NE) in the hippocampus decreased and the level of 5-hydroxyindole acetic acid (5-HIAA) increased in the CUMS-induced depressive rats. However, pre-treatments with genipin significantly increased the levels of 5-HT, NE and decreased the level of 5-HIAA in the hippocampus. The concentration of cAMP in the hippocampus was increased by genipin compared to the CUMS-exposed model group. The mRNA expressions of 5-hydroxytryptamine 1A receptor (5-HT1AR), cAMP response element binding protein (CREB) and brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) in rats were decreased exposed to CUMS, which were reversed by genipin-treated rats exposed to CUMS. Compared to the CUMS-exposed model group, the mRNA expression of 5-hydroxytryptamine 2A receptor (5-HT(2A)R) was decreased significantly by genipin-treated rats. The mRNA and protein expression of CREB, BDNF were increased in genipin-treated rats compared to the CUMS-exposed model group. Moreover, the levels of corticosterone in serum were decreased by genipin-treated compared to the CUMS-exposed model group. These results suggest that the possible mechanism of antidepressant-like effects on genipin, at least in one part, resulted from monoaminergic neurotransmitter system and the potential dysfunctional regulation of the post-receptor signaling pathway, which particularly affected the 5-HT(1A)R, 5-HT(2A)R and BDNF levels in the hippocampus.

Faith and Healing: A Post Dates Home Birth After a Cesarean "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

(Editors note: this birth experience was originally posted on August 23, 2011.)

To gain a little insight of why I had a C-section with my first born, I have it written down as a vent on my blog. It basically started out as one intervention cascading into a ball of interventions that led me to a transfer from a Birth Center birth to the hospital that ended in a non-emergency C-section for being stuck at 5cm for hours and hours. I did a lot of processing and mourned the birth and post par tum bond of my beautiful baby girl, Alana.

I did my research, got in touch with my local ICAN Chapter and soaked up as much info as I could. I also found a lovely CPM who takes VBACs as I knew the best chance of a successful VBAC would to be at home with the least intervention and the most support. I did all my own prenatals, skipped the ultrasound, listened and trusted my body to grow my baby and prepare for birth. I was on top of my nutrition and got monthly adjustments from my chiropractor and even got a wonderful massage at the end of my pregnancy.

My VBAC Baby Born at Home
Wow! Where do I begin? Ethans birth has so many emotions attached to it. So many hopes and dreams came true the night he was born, on Wednesday, May 19th, 2010. Its hard for me to even write what I really want to write here. Whatever I write, it comes from a deep place in my soul.

First, I just have to give praise and honor to our Heavenly Fatherfor knowing the desires of my heart, for loving me through some hard challenges in my life and for allowing them to grow me. Our Creator is so good. While Ethans birth was hard work for me, I have no regrets. I guess I could say I wish things had gone differently, but really Im grateful for how it was. This is his story.

I woke up Friday the 14th (9 days after my due date) still very pregnant and no end in sight. Then around 10am I went to the bathroom to find bloody show. It renewed my faith in my body that things were progressing and that I would be having this baby. I was really hoping that I would be holding my baby within 24 hours, but no. Bloody show came and went and Istill had my all day, every day braxton hicks that would always go away when I went to bed. There was no way I was willing to do anything to speed things along. I knew that in order to have the best possible chance at a VBAC, I would have to allow things to unfold completely unhindered. While it was hard and uncomfortable being so big, I was so at peace with where my body was at and what it needed to do. I........

United States Postal Service Files Patent Application for Blockchain-Based Techs "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

In promising news concerning government adoption of distributed ledger technology, the U.S. Postal Service (USPS) is looking to leverage blockchain in order to build a more secure and efficient identification system. This is according to a patent titled Methods and Systems For A Digital Trust Architecture, filed yesterday, March 22nd.

The filing reads: as more of lifes daily interactions move to online activities, it is apparent that the tools that provide trust to the users are lacking in their ability to adequately provide a desired level of security. Tools that have evolved from physical interactions, like face-to-face communication, and the ability to go there to resolve issues, are not possible in a digital environment.

USPS: Trust and Security

As per the application, in an increasingly digitized world, the agencys current system doesnt provide the desired levels of trust and security it specifically cites concerns such as transaction tampering and insecure messaging. In providing a solution to the security and trust issues that plague USPS users, the agency believes that provisioning a secure digital infrastructure will provide a more secure messaging and authentication service. The filing references the use of email as a form of digital signature, but at the same time recognizes the security limitations of these centralized platforms. 

The application reads: There are many excellent reasons for online interactions to continue as they have been. However, in a multi-party, open source environment, there is also a need for a secure, trusted, and enforceable online environment, to enable greater trust and therefore an expansion of offerings online.

To combat this, the USPS has proposed a system that leverages blockchain, public and private identification keys, and email integrated into decentralized systems. It also calls for a blockchain component that may be configured to receive records from the user and add the records to a blockchain.

Also of note: The Postal Services application highlights the use of a special digital token. Per the text, the token is used to create a record for the user for inclusion in a blockchain: The block chaining of a special digital token provides evidence that a specific transacti......


Genipin attenuates LPS-induced changes of emotional behaviours through inhibition of neural activation and inflammatory responses. "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

PMID:  Eur J Pharmacol. 2014 Oct 15 ;741:1-7. Epub 2014 Jul 30. PMID: 25084220 Abstract Title:  Genipin attenuates lipopolysaccharide-induced persistent changes of emotional behaviors and neural activation in the hypothalamic paraventricular nucleus and the central amygdala nucleus. Abstract:  Sickness behavior is a series of behavioral and psychological changes that develop in inflammatory disease, including infections and cancers. Administration of the bacterial endotoxin lipopolysaccharide (LPS) induces sickness behavior in rodents. Genipin, an aglycon derived from an iridoid glycoside geniposide extracted from the fruit of Gardenia jasminoides, has anti-inflammatory and antidepressant activities. However, the effects of genipin on inflammation-induced changes in emotional behaviors are unknown. In this study, we examined the effects of genipin on LPS-induced inflammation in BV-2 cells and sickness behavior in mice. Pretreatment with genipin inhibited LPS-induced increases in NO production and reduced the mRNA levels of inflammation-related genes (iNOS, COX-2, IL-1 and IL-6) in BV-2 cells. Oral administration of genipin ameliorated LPS-induced depressive-like behavior in the forced swim test and social behavior deficits 24h after LPS administration in mice. LPS-induced expression of mRNAs for inflammation-related genes and the number of c-fos immunopositivecells decreased in the paraventricular nucleus (PVN) of the hypothalamus and the central nucleus of the amygdala (CeA), suggesting that genipin attenuates LPS-induced changes of emotional behaviors through inhibition of neural activation and inflammatory responses in the PVN and CeA. These novel pharmacological effects of genipin may be useful for treatment of patients with sickness behavior.

Distorted History: Who Are The Aryans? "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Today, the word Aryan is loaded with all sorts of negative connotation, largely due to Nazi ideology, Aryans have become associated with racial hierarchies that consider white, blonde, blue-eyed peoples superior. This served as a very useful propaganda tool in seeming historic realities. However, it is not factual.

We have let our society fall into the pit of political correctness to the point even talking about race and the origins of humanity is always met with accusations of racism, more specifically white supremacy.  Being labeled white or black is nothing more than divide and conquer tactics of social engineering.  Science, more specifically genetics is NOT racist.  It just is.

The truth is ALL of humanity has been lied to about our origins.  Its not one specific race suppressing the truth from the others.  Its the 1%, the 13 Illuminati bloodlines & their cohorts trying to suppress the truth about humanitys origins and capabilities.

In the late 19th early 20th centuries did Aryan become equated with Germanic or Nordic peoples. Prior to this corruption, Aryan referred to an archaic language whose speakers are thought to have spread and influenced languages throughout the Indian subcontinent.

To quickly put any Nazi suppositions to rest, the earliest known Aryans lived in prehistoric Iran & Iraq. These people migrated to northern India sometime around 1,500 BC. Previous inhabitants of the Indian subcontinent called these newcomers rya. The English Aryan comes from this Sanskrit word.

From Peter Moons book The Black Sun:

A half billion years ago, the Aryans (known as the Elohim or Elder Race) began to colonize our solar system as Aldebarans became uninhabitable. Marduk, existing in what is today the asteroid belt , was the first to be colonized, then Mars. When they came to Earth, these Aryans were known as the Sumerians.

The Sumerian civilization developed on the Persian Gulf, growing to strength at around 4 3,000 B.C.  The Plain of the Land of Shinar is th...


Genipin could be used for the treatment of periodontal disease to prevent MMPs expression in periodontal lesion. "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

PMID:  Biochimie. 2014 Dec ;107 Pt B:391-5. PMID: 25457105 Abstract Title:  Genipin inhibits MMP-1 and MMP-3 release from TNF-a-stimulated human periodontal ligament cells. Abstract:  Genipin, the aglycon of geniposide found in gardenia fruit has long been considered for treatment of inflammatory diseases in traditional oriental medicine. Genipin has recently been reported to have some pharmacological functions, such as antimicrobial, antitumor, and anti-inflammatory effects. The aim of this study was to examine whether genipin could modify matrix metalloproteinase (MMP)-1 and MMP-3, which are related to the destruction of periodontal tissues in periodontal lesion, expression in tumor necrosis factor (TNF)--stimulated human periodontal ligament cells (HPDLCs). Genipin prevented TNF--mediated MMP-1 and MMP-3 productions in HPDLCs. Moreover, genipin could suppress not only extracellular signal-regulated kinase (ERK) and Jun-N-terminal kinase (JNK) phosphorylations but also AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK) phosphorylation in TNF--stimulated HPDLCs. Inhibitors of ERK and AMPK could inhibit both MMP-1 and MMP-3 productions. Moreover, we revealed the ERK inhibitor suppressed AMPK phosphorylation in TNF--stimulated HPDLCs. These data provide a new mechanism through which genipin could be used for the treatment of periodontal disease to prevent MMPs expression in periodontal lesion.

Chiura Obatas Stunning Paintings of Yosemite

Place and a mind may interpenetrate till the nature of both is altered, the Scottish mountaineer and poet Nan Shepherd wrote in her breathtaking love letter to the mountain. Around the same time, across an ocean and a landmass, another poet laureate of place was serenading nature in a different medium and with a singular voice.

Called to art since childhood, Chiura Obata (November 18, 1885October 6, 1975) was trained in the traditional Japanese ink and brush painting technique sumi-e from the age of seven. When his family readied him for military school at age fourteen, he ran away, left his home prefecture, and traveled four hundred miles north to Tokyo, where he apprenticed himself to a prominent painter for three years. Shortly before his eighteen birthday, Obata left for the United States and settled in San Francisco, working as a domestic servant while pursuing an arts education. He was soon supporting himself with illustration work for Japanese-language magazines and newspapers. But the American Dream was not on offer instead, Obata was met with the eras prevalent racial animosity toward Japanese immigrants, who were socially ostracized, denied entry into restaurants, hotels, and entertainment establishments, and legally prohibited from owning land.



The Rising Pay To Be Featured Economy On Instagram "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Instagram is a great platform for making connections and getting work out there to the masses. Reach hasnt been affected like it has on Facebook just yet. However, on the topic of getting your work out there, feature accounts have really begun to take hold.

Many of them start accumulating a large audience with over 100,000+ followers. The distribution is instant and larger than many magazines, so its no wonder theyre appealing to photographers to be featured on.

On the flip-side, theres a problem having images being re-posted without permission. That in itself is hard enough to keep up with. Another trend I am seeing more regularly is how feature accounts now approach creatives and ask for payment for a feature.

As you can see from this conversation shared by David J. Crewe, they sent a message to him asking if they can share his work. The problem isnt permission or compensation for David, its that they want to get paid to do it. The approach seems completely backward, but based on them saying they are the cheapest on Instagram, it begs a few questions:

1. How many accounts now do this?
2. How many people are paying to be featured?
3. Is there anything wrong with this, and how does this differ from paid advertising?
4. Its morally strange, but is it against Instagrams Terms of Service?

Personally, I dont think this is a great way of approaching people in trying to earn some cash, but are enough people paying into this system that its become so common and profitable for both sides?

I can see the allure, pay a few bucks and get in front of a wide audience, hoping to attain real traffic (if theyre even real). It sounds just like paying for ads, but the approach is uncommon. It can rub people the wrong way, and it can be insulting based on how you read into it.

I wonder if this will ever go away, or will it become the new norm?


Genipin may be a promising preventative treatment to slow the degradation of cartilage. "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

PMID:  J Orthop Res. 2015 Nov ;33(11):1571-1579. Epub 2015 May 18. PMID: 25939430 Abstract Title:  Genipin crosslinking of cartilage enhances resistance to biochemical degradation and mechanical wear. Abstract:  Collagen crosslinking enhances many beneficial properties of articular cartilage, including resistance to chemical degradation and mechanical wear, but many crosslinking agents are cytotoxic. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of genipin, a crosslinking agent with favorable biocompatibility and cytotoxicity, as a potential treatment to prevent the degradation and wear of articular cartilage. First, the impact of genipin concentration and treatment duration on the viscoelastic properties of bovine articular cartilage was quantified. Next, two short-term (15 min) genipin crosslinking treatments were chosen, and the change in collagenase digestion, cartilage wear, and the friction coefficient of the tissue with these treatments was measured. Finally, chondrocyte viability after exposure to these genipin treatments was assessed. Genipin treatment increased the stiffness of healthy, intact cartilage in a dose-dependent manner. The 15-min crosslinking treatments improved cartilage's resistance to both chemical degradation, particularly at the articular surface, and to damage due to mechanical wear. These enhancements were achieved without sacrificing the low coefficient of friction of the tissue and at a genipin dose that preserved chondrocyte viability. The results of this study suggest that collagen crosslinking via genipin may be a promising preventative treatment to slow the degradation of cartilage.

Why nutritional psychiatry is the future of mental health treatment "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Joyce Cavaye, The Open University

A lack of essential nutrients is known to contribute to the onset of poor mental health in people suffering from anxiety and depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia and ADHD. Nutritional psychiatry is a growing discipline that focuses on the use of food and supplements to provide these essential nutrients as part of an integrated or alternative treatment for mental health disorders.

But nutritional approaches for these debilitating conditions are not widely accepted by mainstream medicine. Treatment options tend to be limited to official National Institute for Care Excellence (NICE) guidelines which recommend talking therapies and antidepressants.

Use of antidepressants

Antidepressant use has more than doubled in recent years. In England 64.7m prescriptions were issued for antidepressants in 2016 at a cost of 266.6m. This is an increase of 3.7m on the number of items prescribed in 2015 and...


Genipin suppresses NLRP3 inflammasome activation through uncoupling protein-2. "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

PMID:  Cell Immunol. 2015 Sep ;297(1):40-5. Epub 2015 Jun 16. PMID: 26123077 Abstract Title:  Genipin suppresses NLRP3 inflammasome activation through uncoupling protein-2. Abstract:  Incomplete clearance of apoptotic cells and reactive oxygen species (ROS) release are known to trigger inflammasome activation causing severe inflammation in acute lung injury and various metabolic and autoimmune diseases. Moreover, it has been reported that apoptotic cell clearance and ROS-mediated apoptosis critically depend on mitochondrial uncoupling protein-2 (UCP2). However, the relationship between UCP2 and inflammasome activation has not been studied. This report investigates the role of UCP2 in the expression and activation of NACHT, LRR and PYD domains-containing protein 3 (NLRP3) inflammasome in human macrophages. We found that UCP2 overexpression significantly enhanced the expression levels of NLRP3. The NLRP3 expression levels were significantly suppressed in THP1 cells treated with genipin, a UCP2 inhibitor, compared to controls. In addition, genipin altered adenosine triphosphate (ATP)- and hydrogen peroxide (H2O2)-mediated interleukin-1 beta (IL-1) secretion and significantly suppressed caspase-1 activity in inflammasome-activated human macrophages. Taken together, our results suggest that genipin modulates NLRP3 inflammasome activation and ATP- or H2O2-mediated IL-1 release.

Hackers Target Atlanta Government Computers, Bitcoin Ransom Demanded "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

A group of hackers are demanding payment in Bitcoin to unlock computer systems they were able infiltrate in Atlanta. Yesterdays ransomware attack targeted computers in important government departments. Data stored on the affected systems has been digitally encrypted.

Another Case of Bitcoin Ransomware

The security breach was first reported via a statement by the city on Thursday morning. The following was later posted to Atlantas official Twitter account:

According to local news source 11 Alive, the hackers are demanding a ransom of $6,800 be paid for each affected computer system. A screen shot sent to the publication from an employee of the city shows that the entire cost will be $51,000. This is to be paid in Bitcoin. Andrew Green, a security expert and professor at Kennesaw State University, is reported to be analysing the document. If the hackers receive said bounty, they will apparently decrypt the data that has been compromised.

The mayor of Atlanta, Keisha Lance Bottoms, made an official announcement regarding the hacking yesterday afternoon. She stated in an impromptu press conference that the full gravity of the attack was unknown at present. She also offered a warning to anyone who had business or consumer relationships with city departments. She said:

We dont know the extent or if anyones personal data or bank accounts will be compromised All of us are subject to this attack.

Despite the extent of the security breach being unknown at present, Atlantas Chief Operating Officer, Richard Cox claimed that water, public safety, and airport operations were not affected. He continued:

City payroll has not been affected and we have not determined that City Hall will need to be closed on Friday.

There have been no further updates from government officials on the situation since.

RyobiNation Dream Workshop TableSaw Cart "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

One of the biggest challenges of building is having a good workspace.  Building without a workspace is like cooking without a kitchen.  Now your workspace doesn't have to be super fancy or expensive - it's more about good organization and thoughtful tool placement.  The last thing you want to do is haul your saw out of storage everytime you build.  That would be like pulling your oven out of storage everytime you wanted to bake.

I had the great honor of helping design the RyobiNation Dream Workshop.

In the workshop, we found homes for all the heavy tools.  The mitersaw is on a cart that pulls out.  The storage bases are carts that pull out to support your boards on either side of the miter saw.

The tablesaw is also a heavy tool.  To make it more accessible, we mounted it on a cart with locking casters.

We matched the height of the tablesaw deck to the height of the same carts that support the miter saw (and also can be used as work tables)

So the workcarts can be used as infeed, outfeed, or side feeds for the table saw.  This is a big deal when using a tablesaw as it essentially increases the size of your deck.

You can see the tablesaw cart in action here -

This describes the chemopreventive properties of genipin on AGS cell line. "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

PMID:  J Biochem Mol Toxicol. 2016 Jan ;30(1):45-54. Epub 2015 Sep 17. PMID: 26377927 Abstract Title:  Chemopreventive Properties of Genipin on AGS Cell Line via Induction of JNK/Nrf2/ARE Signaling Pathway. Abstract:  Roles of dietary phytochemicals in cancer chemoprevention via induction of nuclear factor-erythroid-2-related factor 2 (Nrf2)-mediated antioxidant enzymes have been well established in a number of studies. In this study, FACS analysis was used to reveal that the intracellular reactive oxygen species level decreased at 0-25M of genipin treatment. Furthermore, immunofluorescence analysis and Western blotting were used to demonstrate that genipin treatment resulted in the upregulation and nuclear translocation of Nrf2, as well as upregulation of gastrointestinal glutathione peroxidase. Finally, we found that C-Jun-NH2-kinase (JNK) was also dose-dependently activated, where depleting JNK by using a biochemical inhibitor indicated that JNK was upstream of Nrf2. Interestingly, the antioxidant effects were limited to the treatment in the lower dosage of genipin, where higher dosage of genipin treatment resulted in the increased reactive oxygen species level and cytotoxicity. Thus, this study demonstrates for the first time that lower dosage of genipin results in the induction of JNK/Nrf2/ARE signaling pathway and protection from cell death.

Microplastic pollution in worlds oceans poses major threat to filter-feeding megafauna "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Even as the world is waking up to the problems created by the massive amounts of plastic pollution in Earths oceans and taking steps to address the issue new research is shedding light on how detrimental that pollution is to marine wildlife. A study published in the journal Trends in Ecology & Evolution last month, for instance, looks at how filter-feeding marine animals like baleen whales, manta rays, and whale sharks are impacted by microplastics. Filter feeders face exceptionally high risks of exposure to plastic pollution in the oceans because many of them are found in some of the most polluted waters in the world, such as the Bay of Bengal, the Gulf of Mexico, the Mediterranean Sea, and the Coral Triangle, a geographical region that lies in the waters between Indonesia, Malaysia, Papua New Guinea, and the Philippines. A 2016 report by the Ellen MacArthur Foundation found that more than 8 million metric tons of plastic waste makes its way into the oceans every year, which works out to be roughly a garbage truck-full of plastic being dumped into the oceans every minute. Whats more, the report also determined that if we allow business-as-usual to continue, plastic pollution could find its way into our oceans at four times the current rate by 2050 at which point the plastic in our oceans would weigh more than all of the fish combined. In response to this issue, more than 40 countries have joined the UN Environment Programmes CleanSeas

Photographer Spends Years Capturing Incredible Up-Close Photos of Brown Bears "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Kamchatka Brown Bears by Sergey Gorshkov

Kamchatka, a peninsula located in the Russian Far East, is a fascinating land. Bordered by the Pacific Ocean and the Sea of Okhotsk, filled with volcanoes, its subarctic temperatures have piqued the interest of explorers since the 17th century. But it was Kamchatka's population of brown bearsone of the densest in the worldthat attracted wildlife photographer Sergey Gorshkov, and pulled him back year after year to study these fascinating mammals.

Reaching up to nearly 10 feet when standing and 1,433 pounds, Kamchatka brown bears are alarming in their size, but relatively gentle with humans. The kings of Kamchatka, these bears feast on salmon and berries during the summer, while in the autumn nuts are added to their diet. Thought to be the ancestors of Kodiak bears found in Alaska, explorers since the 19th century have been fascinated by their behavior.

Gorshkov, who specializes in photographing Russian wildlife, started his career inspired by what he encountered in Kamchatka. I am often asked how I started photography. Many years ago, when I first came to Kamchatka, I was literally stunned by its nature and decided to buy a photo album about Kamchatka as a souvenir, Gorshkov tells My Modern Met. But on the day of departure, unfortunately, I could not find such an album. It was then that I first thought: I will return and take pictures myself'.'

Brandy Miller never would have expected her familys cat, Shotzie, to do anything heroic. In fact, Miller always thought of the 11-year-old cat as kind of a loner.

Shes not really a people cat, Miller told The Dodo. She doesnt like being around anyone except for my mom and my stepdad, Kirk. If anyone comes over, she usually hides. And if Im around her, shell usually start hissing. She just doesnt like me or my sisters.

But three weeks ago, Shotzie did something that proved her love for the people in her life.  

On March 2, Millers stepdad, Kirk Mathis, had a heart attack in the house he shares with Millers mom, Tammy.

My stepdad was getting ready to leave for work  he leaves for work at 4 oclock in the morning, Miller said. I think he had just fed [Shotzie], and he was going to the door and he had this massive heart attack. He fell back and hit the ground.

Shotzie sprang to action. She ran back in the bedroom, jumped up on the bed, slid across her comforter, pounced on [my moms] head and let out the biggest roar to wake her up, Miller said. She said, Shotzie roared like a mountain lion. She said it was an extremely loud and deep growl to get her up and get moving.

Shotzie had never made a sound like this before, and Tammy immediately realized something was wrong. When Tammy went into the living room, she found Kirk lying on the floor.

She immediately started CPR on him, but couldnt get a response from him, Miller said. She got the firefighters there, and they had to shock him three times, and they finally got a heartbeat from him.

Martin Stavars, The One Man in a Web of Online Photo Contests "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Online photo contests are a popular way for photographers to test their skills and vie for global recognition and bragging rights. But some contests are more reputable than others. A number of popular photo contests are now at the center of a growing controversy, and all indications seem to point to the fact that there may be one mysterious man behind all of them.

The first murmurings of trouble began earlier this month, when a number of photo contest judges publicly sounded an alarm. It turns out the judges recruited for the International Photographer of the Year (IPOTY) contest werent asked to judge a single photo before the winners were announced.

It was also observed that the Monochrome Photography Awards had a website structure and contest format that was eerily similar to IPOTY. An anonymous Monochrome representative denied to PetaPixel that the two contests are related (admitting that there was a partnership that ended in 2016), but PDN soon discovered that this years Monochrome judges werent involved in picking the contests winners either.

So, we began digging into this mystery in an attempt to unravel the truth behind these photo contests, and one name has continually appeared in every corner weve looked: Martin Stavars.

Mentions of Stavars have been disappearing from the Internet in recent days, but cached versions of web pages still contain details that paint a picture of who Stavars is.

This is just the short list, The long list will blow your socks and jocks off.

I've investigated a lot of crimes over the last 32 years, including murders. Any criminal investigator with the slightest bit of experience and training could easily see (and most have seen) the many flaws, holes and gaps in the so-called Vince Foster "murder" investigation by, of all the fede...ral law enforcement agencies, the Park Police. But, when one does a little more checking into the past of Bill and Hillary Clinton, they will find a long path of former friends, associates and business partners of the Clinton's who have died young and under mysterious circumstances. The following is a partial list of those whose blood cries out for justice.

Kevin Ives and Don Henry: Died August 1987. Reportedly, they had stumbled upon the Arkansas Mena Drug Operation (many stories and articles have been written about Clinton's affiliation with the Mena Mafia) It was first reported that these two young boys died as a result of falling asleep on a railroad track. It was later revealed that Ives had received a crushed skull prior to being placed on the tracks and Henry had been stabbed to death. The following 7 deaths were all of people who reportedly had knowledge and information concerning the mysterious, unsolved murders of Kevin Ives and Don Henry:
1.Keith Coney:died July 1988 from injuries sustained from a motorcycle accident. Some reports indicated that he was being chased by an unidentified vehicle.
2.Keith McKaskle: died Nov. 1988 from multiple stab wounds
3.Greg Collins: died Jan. 1989 from a gunshot wound to the head. No suspect was ever found.
4.Jeff Rhodes: died April 1989 from a gunshot wound to the head. His body was burned and thrown in a dumpster.
5.James Milam: died 1989. His death was ruled as being from natural causes, until his head was later recovered from a trash bin!
6.Richard Winters: died July 1990 from injuries sustained during a robbery attempt. He was a suspect in the death of Kevin Ives and Don Henry. Some reports claim the robbery was only a setup.
7.Jordan Kettleson: died June 1990. He died from gunshot wounds and was found sitting in his truck.
Suzanne Coleman: died when Clinton served as Arkansas Attorney General. She was alleged to have been "romantically" involved with Clinton. Although she died from a gunshot to the back of her head, the death was ruled a suicide! She was pregnant at the time of her death.

Vaccine Injury Payouts: Taxpayers on the Hook for over $3.8 Billion as Vaccine Makers Rake in Profits "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"



by the World Mercury Project Team

The National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act (NCVIA) that went into effect in 1988 stipulated that vaccine manufacturers cannot be held liable for injuries or deaths that occur from use of their vaccines which are recommended for every child in America by the Centers for Disease Control.

The National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (NVICP) or vaccine court created with this Act is not a court at all but actually a taxpayer funded government claims program that uses special masters, employees of Health and Human Services (HHS), rather than judges to make decisions on compensation to victims. The vaccine manufacturers are defended by taxpayer-funded, Department of Justice lawyers.

The petitioners on the other hand, while suffering from and paying for their or their childs injuries, become embroiled in a litigious system where cases, according to the U.S. Government Accounting Office, are known to drag on for years.

Vaccine makers are in a win-win position that no other industry in America enjoys. While profits go to vaccine companies, the monetary amounts awarded to the vaccine-injured from vaccine court are paid for by taxpayers.

As vaccine makers arent held accountable for unsafe products intended for children, theres no incentive for them to ensure the vaccines they manufacture are safe.

Growth inhibition of estrogen receptor positive human breast cancer cells by Taheebo. "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

PMID:  Int J Mol Med. 2009 Aug ;24(2):253-60. PMID: 19578798 Abstract Title:  Growth inhibition of estrogen receptor positive human breast cancer cells by Taheebo from the inner bark of Tabebuia avellandae tree. Abstract:  Selective estrogen receptor (ER) modulators are used as a therapy for ER+ clinical breast cancer, but they exhibit adverse effects. Herbal medicines may provide an alternative or complementary approach. Taheebo, extracted from the inner bark of the Tabebuia avellandae tree found in the Brazilian Amazon, exhibits selective anti-proliferative effects in carcinoma cell lines. The present study identifies the mechanistic leads for the inhibitory effects of Taheebo. Human breast carcinoma derived ER+MCF-7 cells were used as the model. Aqueous extract of Taheebo was the test compound. Cell cycle analysis, clonogenic assay, and global gene expression profiles were the quantitative parameters. Taheebo treatment resulted in a dose/time-dependent growth inhibition (S phase arrest, reduced clonogeneticity) and initiation of apoptosis (chromatin condensation). A 6-h treatment with 1.5 mg/ml Taheebo modulated the gene expression of G2 specific cyclin B1 (-2.0-fold); S phase specific PCNA (-2.0-fold) and OKL38 (+11.0-fold); apoptosis specific GADD-45 family (+1.9-5.4-fold), Caspases (+1.6-1.7-fold), BCL-2 family (-1.5-2.5-fold), estrogen responsive ESR1 (-1.5-fold), and xeno-biotic metabolism specific CYP 1A1 (+19.8 fold) and CYP 1B1 (+7.9-fold). The anti-proliferative effects of Taheebo correlate with down-regulated cell cycle regulatory and estrogen responsive genes, and up-regulated apoptosis specific and xeno-biotic metabolism specific genes. These data validate a rapid mechanistic approach to prioritize efficacious herbal medicines, thereby complementing the existing endocrine therapy for breast cancer.

Taheebo led to significant anti-inflammatory effects and inhibited inflammation by 30-50% compared with the control. "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

PMID:  Mol Med Rep. 2012 Oct ;6(4):791-6. Epub 2012 Jul 17. PMID: 22825254 Abstract Title:  Analgesic and anti-inflammatory effects in animal models of an ethanolic extract of Taheebo, the inner bark of Tabebuia avellanedae. Abstract:  Taheebo, the purple inner bark of the Bignoniaceae tree Tabebuia avellanedae Lorentz ex Griseb, which is found in tropical rain forests in northeastern Brazil, has been used as a traditional medicine for various diseases for more than 1,500 years. In the current study, various animal models were used to demonstrate the analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties of its ethanolic extract, thereby investigating its potential as a therapeutic treatment for diseases with pain and inflammation. In the hot plate and writhing tests for the in vivo analgesic effect test of Taheebo, a 200 mg/kg dose of the extract induced a significant anti-nociceptive effect and increased the pain threshold by approximately 30% compared with the control. In vascular permeability and tetradecanoylphorbol acetate (TPA), arachidonic acid- and carrageenan-induced paw edema tests for anti-inflammatory effects, treatment with 200 mg/kg Taheebo led to significant anti-inflammatory effects and inhibited inflammation by 30-50% compared with the control. At 100 mg/kg, the extract decreased the levels of pain and inflammation in all tested models, but the degree of inhibition was not statistically significant. The results suggest that the ethanolic extract of the inner bark of Tabebuia avellanedae has the potential to be developed as a therapeutic or supportive drug against diseases with accompanying pain and inflammation, including osteoarthritis.

The petitioners on the other hand, while suffering from and paying for their or their childs injuries, become embroiled in a litigious system where cases, according to the U.S. Government Accounting Office, are known to drag on for years.

Vaccine makers are in a win-win position that no other industry in America enjoys. While profits go to vaccine companies, the monetary amounts awarded to the vaccine-injured from vaccine court are paid for by taxpayers.

As vaccine makers arent held accountable for unsafe products intended for children, theres no incentive for them to ensure the vaccines they manufacture are safe.

Verisart: Using Blockchain to Verify the Authenticity of Art "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

British contemporary artist Philip Colbert has long been considering creating his own catalog system to prove the authenticity of his expanding collection: enter Rob Norton, the founder of Verisart, a U.S.-based startup thats using blockchain to verify the authenticity of artwork.

As we know, blockchain creates an immutable record of every transaction whether it be art, labor and land, or cryptocurrencies. Widespread adoption of the technology could give a boost to the market for art online, which has yet to explode. Online sales currently account for only about 8%, or $5.4 billion, of the global art market, according to a report by UBS Group AG and Art Basel released this month.

Art is a currency in a way; at the end of the day when they come to auction, the provenance is a very important element of their value.

Trust, or lack of it, is at the core of the challenge, with potential buyers balking at the possibility of spending considerable sums on works whose authenticity cant be fully verified. In fact, according to Norton, the value of fake art sold is almost double the real thing.

When it comes to art, theres a higher hurdle of trust that you have to clear, you have to know that what youre buying is real, said Norton. Art is the second-largest unregulated market after illicit drugs and its significantly overshadowed by fraudulent activity. You can accelerate trust and liquidity by providing better standards for verifiable, global certification.


Verisart started in 2015 as a phone app that permitted artists to create their own systems of art verification. When that approach didnt take off as expected, the company built a web app working with Ahmed Elgammal, a computer science professor at Rutgers University.

We were a little bit early, we were figuring out where the market was, getting feedback from artists, and building a platform that people could use, Norton said. Now increasingly working with partners, those certificates can be customized.

Colberts certificates, for example, contain small reproductions of the piece itself called image hashes, along with all of the relevant information about its creation, ownership, and movement  such as whether it was part of an exhibition......


Taheebo attenuates increase in body weight and fatty liver in mice fed a high-fat diet. "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

PMID:  Molecules. 2014 Oct 8 ;19(10):16013-23. Epub 2014 Oct 8. PMID: 25299819 Abstract Title:  Ethanolic extract of Taheebo attenuates increase in body weight and fatty liver in mice fed a high-fat diet. Abstract:  We evaluated whether intake of an ethanolic extract of Taheebo (TBE) from Tabebuia avellanedae protects against body weight increase and fat accumulation in mice with high-fat diet (HFD)-induced obesity. Four-week old male C57BL/6 mice were fed a HFD (25% fat, w/w) for 11 weeks. The diet of control (HFD) mice was supplemented with vehicle (0.5% sodium carboxymethyl cellulose by gavage); the diet of experimental (TBE) mice was supplemented with TBE (150 mg/kg body weight/day by gavage). Mice administered TBE had significantly reduced body weight gain, fat accumulation in the liver, and fat pad weight, compared to HFD mice. Reduced hypertrophy of fat cells was also observed in TBE mice. Mice administered TBE also showed significantly lower serum levels of triglycerides, insulin, and leptin. Lipid profiles and levels of mRNAs and proteins related to lipid metabolism were determined in liver and white adipose tissue of the mice. Expression of mRNA and proteins related to lipogenesis were decreased in TBE-administered mice compared to mice fed HFD alone. These results suggest that TBE inhibits obesity and fat accumulation by regulation of gene expression related to lipid metabolism in HFD-induced obesity in mice.

FAIRFAX, Virginia If you visit any museum in the United States, chances are you will interact with a gun in some way. There are the obvious displays, like military museums with case after case of Civil War-era rifles, or historic sites such as Fords Theatre that are preserved due to their connections to assassinations. There are the art museums with collections ranging from the subtle violence of paintings depicting the American West, to postwar and contemporary art responding to violence. And local historical societies, as innocuous as they may seem, often interpret guns, sometimes behind glass, sometimes in public programs where class after class of school children learn to drill like soldiers or how to fire a cannon under the dutiful tutelage of a reenactor. As someone who has devoted my life to studying and working in museums, I cannot think of a single institution that Ive visited or worked at that did not have at least some tenuous connection to guns, the military, or violence. Just as gun ownership is endemic in the US, our cultural institutions no matter the region or the topic remind us that gun violence is a pervasive risk and reality, a major current in American culture.

Given the prominent place that guns, violence, and depictions of domineering masculinity play in our collections, museums responses to gun violence have been at best sporadic. At a time when museums and cultural institutions are increasingly willing to foster dialogue on current events, sp...

Taheebo extract might be a promising functional food resources capable of protecting against ovariectomized induced obesity. "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

PMID:  Biochem Biophys Res Commun. 2016 09 23 ;478(3):1136-40. Epub 2016 Aug 15. PMID: 27539320 Abstract Title:  The anti-obesity effect of Taheebo (Tabebuia avellanedae Lorentz ex Griseb) extract in ovariectomized mice and the identification of a potential anti-obesity compound. Abstract:  Estrogen deficiency-induced obesity has a high risk of visceral fat accumulation and body weight gain. It is also associated with many adverse health conditions. Taheebo extract from Tabebuia avellanedae has been recognized as playing several biological and pharmacological roles. Therefore, we investigated whether the intake of n-BuOH extract of Taheebo shows anti-obesity effect in ovariectomized (OVX) mice. After 16 weeks of feeding, the mice administrated with 0.5% n-BuOH extract of Taheebo showed significantly decreased body weight compared with that of the control mice, and the fat mass also showed a significant decrease. In 3T3-L1 cells, supplementation with n-BuOH extract of Taheebo significantly reduced the triglyceride (TG) levels. Furthermore, bioassay-guided purification of the n-BuOH extract based on the TG levels in 3T3-L1 cells led to the isolation of compound 2 (1-dehydroxy-3,4-dihydroaucubigenin). These results suggested that the anti-obesity effect of Taheebo extract is due to its capability in preventing the accumulation of adipocyte in mice. Taheebo extract might be a promising functional food resources capable of protecting against OVX-induced obesity.

The NSA Worked to Track Down Bitcoin Users, Snowden Documents Reveal "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

The NSA Worked to Track Down Bitcoin Users, Snowden Documents Reveal

By Sam Biddle

Internet paranoiacs drawn to bitcoin have long indulged fantasies of American spies subverting the booming, controversial digital currency. Increasingly popular among get-rich-quick speculators, bitcoin started out as a high-minded project to make financial transactions public and mathematically verifiable  while also offering discretion. Governments, with a vested interest in controlling how money moves, would, some of bitcoins fierce advocates believed, naturally try and thwart the coming techno-libertarian financial order.

It turns out the conspiracy theorists were onto something. Classified documents provided by whistleblower Edward Snowden show that the National Security Agency indeed worked urgently to target bitcoin users around the world and wielded at least one mysterious source of information to help track down senders and receivers of Bitcoins, according to a top-secret passage in an internal NSA report dating to March 2013. The data source appears to have leveraged the NSAs ability to harvest and analyze raw, global internet traffic while also exploiting an unnamed software program that purported to offer anonymity to users, according to other documents.

Although the agency was interested in surveilling some competing cryptocurrencies, Bitcoin is #1 priority, a March 15, 2013 internal NSA report stated.

The documents indicate that tracking down bitcoin users went well beyond closely examining bitcoins public transaction ledger, known as the Blockchain, where users are typically referred to through anonymous identifiers; the tracking may also have involved gathering intimate details of these users computers. The NSA collected some bitcoin users password information, internet activity, and a type of unique device identification number known as a MAC address, a March 29, 2013 NSA memo suggested. In the same document, analysts also discussed tracking internet users int...

Kevin and Avontes Law Signed into Law Today as Part of the Omnibus Spending Act of 2018 "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

SafeMinds is excited to announce that Kevin and Avontes Law, which provides $2 million in funding for training law enforcement, schools, and other community organizations to prevent and address wandering in people with developmental disabilities and people with Alzheimers Disease, has passed both houses of Congress and was signed into law by President Trump. The legislation can be found on page 1937 of the Omnibus Spending Act of 2018.

Specifically, the bill provides funding to health care agencies, state and local law enforcement agencies, or public safety agencies and nonprofit organizations to assist in planning, designing, establishing, or operating locally-based, proactive programs to prevent wandering and locate missing individuals with developmental disabilities or forms of dementia who wander, including programs that:

  • Provide prevention and response information, including online training and referrals;
  • Deliver education and training to first responders, school personnel, clinicians, and the public to reduce the incidence of wandering; facilitate rescue and recovery of those who wander; and recognize, respond to, and appropriately interact with endangered missing individuals who wander;
  • Provide prevention and response training and emergency protocols for school staff, and families or guardians of individuals with developmental disabilities or dementia to reduce the risk of wandering by such individuals; and
  • Develop, operate, or enhance notification or communication systems for alerts, advisories, or dissemination of other information for recovery of missing individuals with developmental disabilities or dementia.

Health care agencies, public safety agencies, or state and law enforcement may also use the funding to design, establish, and operate locative tracking technology programs for children with developmental disabilities or people with forms of dementia who wander. To protect the privacy of those individuals using the locative devices:

  • The use of locative technology must be voluntary, non-permanent, and non-invasive.
  • Collection and retention of any data from the locative technology is solely for the purpose of preventing injury to or death of the individual with the device.
  • There must be a consideration of whether the use of the device is the least restrictive alternative for ensuring the safety of the individual who wanders.

This is a paid press release, which contains forward looking statements, and should be treated as advertising or promotional material. does not endorse nor support this product/service. is not responsible for or liable for any content, accuracy or quality within the press release.

BlokForge, one the nations largest suppliers of cryptocurrency mining hardware, is announcing the grand opening of its 2,000 sq. ft. retail location in Mesa, Arizona. The new store will carry over 20 product SKUs from the largest brands in the world such as Canaan Creative.

The U.S.-based retail location represents a physical presence and is the first to do so stateside. BlokForge will be offering sales, repair, and consulting, along with classes by the end of the year.

Despite being a relatively new entrant to the mining supply space, BlokForge is unique in that it originated as an import-export company with over 20 years of experience sourcing hardware from overseas manufacturers before segueing into cryptocurrency mining hardware. The U.S. based company has grown quickly, expanding to its current 100,000 sq ft. warehouse. Formerly the site of Sunkist Citrus Growers, it was acquired by BlokForges parent company in February of 2015 and redesigned by Arizona architect Debartolo Architects in an effort to preserve the historical significance of the building, while making it fully functional for the growing needs of the supplier.

Column: Its Poetry in Motion "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

I should begin by noting that I think everyone has the right to choose a spiritual path thats meaningful to them. Youd think that wouldnt be controversial but a couple of thousand years of history suggests otherwise. Second, let me say that Im not a physicist, but I have taught statistical mechanics; that would also be the semester I last said sure, Ill help.

So now we can backtrack a bit. Picture it: grad school, 1992. There was this lowly PhD student who was brilliantly good at statistics sitting in class deeply focused on an advanced lecture on fixed vs. random effects in regression models. He was effortlessly capable of seeing how statistical methods exposed all sorts of complicated and subtle relationships. I hated him.

I cant quite remember the reason but the lecture soon turned into a sort-of philosophy of science conversation. The ten students in the class came from a variety of disciplines. But basically, we broke down into two groups: those in the real sciences and those wasting their abilities in other areas. It was a manifestation of long-standing inferiority complex in academia: that the social sciences use the jargon of hard sciences to gain legitimacy.

We call it physics envy. It stems from physics essentially mathematicising itself since the discovery of calculus in the 17th century and gaining enormous predictive power. The success of physics from its embrace of mathematics is astonishing. The field not only made quick and substantial inroads toward understanding the relationships of forces and demonstrating causality, but it also in modern times has become so sophisticated as to predict events and even missing pieces of the known universe.  One such famous example is the theorized existence of an unknown particle- the Higgs boson- nearly 50 years before it was observed and discovered.

The issue is simple: social sciences consistently need to qualify their findings in order to precisely describe the limitations of their results. This has led to all sorts of other issues about replicable results as well as demographic and temporal dependencies. It even leads to bigger, more hypnotic words if you can imagine it. I think thats partly why coffee exists. But all of that qualification suggests that comparatively little science actually happened in a study.   And, not only are the findings less perfect, so is the field from which they came.

Social sciences are often accused of using the methods of science to build theories for additional empirical...


Oral administration of taheebo water extract prevents DSS-induced colitis in mice. "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

PMID:  BMC Complement Altern Med. 2017 Sep 6 ;17(1):448. Epub 2017 Sep 6. PMID: 28877696 Abstract Title:  Oral administration of taheebo (Tabebuia avellanedae Lorentz ex Griseb.) water extract prevents DSS-induced colitis in mice by up-regulating type II T helper immune responses. Abstract:  BACKGROUND: Inflammatory bowel diseases (IBDs) are chronic inflammatory disorders that are mediated by pathogenic Th1 and Th17 cells. Previous studies have demonstrated that taheebo water extract (TWE) derived from Tabebuia avellanedae Lorentz ex Griseb., as folk remedy, has been used to treat various inflammatory diseases. Although TWE has been previously shown to display anti-inflammatory activities, the in vivo effects of TWE on mucosal immune responses remain unclear.METHODS: We examined the anti-inflammatory effects of TWE on innate immune cells such as dendritic cells (DCs) and macrophages and also on the differentiation of T helper cells. Lastly, adopting a method for dextran sulfate sodium (DSS)-induced colitis, we investigated whether the oral administration of TWE can modulate mucosal inflammatory responses.RESULTS: We found that TWE could activate DCs to produce immunosuppressive IL10 and polarize macrophages toward an anti-inflammatory phenotype in the mesenteric lymph node (MLN). Such alterations in DCs and macrophages resulted in a significant increase in anti-inflammatory Th2 and Foxp3Treg cells and a dramatic decrease in pro-inflammatory Th1 and Th17 cells in the MLN. Upon induction of colitis with DSS treatment, TWE significantly reduced the clinical symptoms, including body weight loss and colonic tissue inflammation, by up-regulating type II T helper immune responses.CONCLUSIONS: Taken together, these data suggest that TWE is an excellent natural product with therapeutic effects to help improve inflammatory disorders such as colitis.

Blockchain and Monetization of Content "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

The Promise of Ethereum

Ethereum, the leading blockchain platform, and catalyst for a growing number of decentralized applications and blockchain-based platforms has proven over the past 12 months that it is far from a fad. This immutable, unhackable, distributed database of digital assets is everything the Internet always wanted to be: a fair and public way to store and transfer information. This is a platform for truth and its a platform for trust.

In the music industry, the protection of rights and distribution of earnings within the music industry is a key consideration. Removing the ability for piracy and allowing listeners to download music stored on the blockchain, paying for the music with cryptocurrency would be one of the paradigm shifts. It would also mean that the right people get paid.

This challenge of monetizing content is also prevalent in the broadcast content industry. Ethereum Blockchain with smart contracts makes for a perfect solution.

Pain Points for Content Creators

The industry has not changed in over 80 years. Today, it continues to be a largely offline and extensive process, involving multiple dis-jointed parties the creators, the owners, the distributors, the increasing array of formats (eg. mobile, free-to-air TV, cable, OTT, cinemas, etc) and then there is a global consumer base with differing interests and language preferences.

The whole ecosystem today is highly fragmented and content creators are challenged to optimally monetize their content. Compounding the monetization challenge is the fact that content creators also face extremely high costs of distribution. Because the value chain is a cumbersome process for content to reach end viewers; typically 30% to 40% of the value of the content is being lost to cost of distribution via third-party commissions and fees. Hosting a conference booth and meeting events with champagne in the South of France at the Cannes Film Festival is no cheap affair.

To give some context on the potential value of a piece of content, lets take well-known franchises like Game of Thrones or the F1 Series.   These projects can be sold in 193+ countries via free-to-air, cable, satellite and streaming mobile platforms, that is, it can potentially be sold 600 different ways once you factor language and territorial configurations.

An A list project can potentially earn millions of dollars via such a syndication, however, a lesser known title is lucky to be sold in 10 countries and monetized in 10 ways. Hence the potential to optimize the value of this content is at least 50 times more for the content creator if they can easily monetize their content across the various permutations.

The chief pain points of content sellers are:



Here It Comes: China About To Launch Tens Of Billions More In Tariffs "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

This report was originally published by Tyler Durden at Zero Hedge

This morning the market has been on edge over, and traders are obsessed with just one question: how will China retaliate to Trumps trade war and tariffs further. After all, the initial response of a modest 15-25% tariff on $3 billion in 128, mostly agricultural, products, seemed laughably small and appeared to be more of a warning shot than a real response to Trumps $50BN in Section 301 tariffs.

One answer was revealed moments ago when as we reported that Chinas ambassador to the US Cui Tiankai did not rule out the possibility of scaling back purchases of Treasuries in response to Trumps tariffs.

We are looking at all options, he said, when asked whether China would consider reduced purchases of Treasuries. Thats why we believe any unilateral and protectionist move would hurt everybody, including the United States itself. It would certainly hurt the daily life of American middle-class people, and the American companies, and the financial markets.

But the more likely reaction is that China will simply escalate with a brute force tit-for-tat retaliation, and as Citi notes, the editor-in-chief of the state-controlled Chinese newspaper Global Times, Hu Xijin, confirmed precisely that when he tweeted: I learned that Chinese govt is determined to strike back.

More importantly, he explained the confusion over the disproportionate $3 billion response, noting that Fridays plan to impose $3b tariffs is simply to retaliate to tariffs on steel and aluminum products, i.e. a response to the previous, Section 232 round of tariffs, and has nothing to do with the latest round of $50 billion in Section 301 tariffs.

Instead, Hu warns that Chinas retaliation lists against the 301 investigation will target US products worth $ tens of billions. It is in...


Taheebo polyphenols attenuate free fatty acid-induced inflammation. "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

PMID:  Front Nutr. 2017 ;4:63. Epub 2017 Dec 12. PMID: 29312947 Abstract Title:  Taheebo Polyphenols Attenuate Free Fatty Acid-Induced Inflammation in Murine and Human Macrophage Cell Lines As Inhibitor of Cyclooxygenase-2. Abstract:  Aim of study: Taheebo polyphenols (TP) are water extracts ofspp. (Bignoniaceae), taken from the inner bark of thetree, used extensively as folk medicine in Central and South America. Some anti-inflammatory drugs act by inhibiting both cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) and COX-1 enzymes. COX-2 syntheses prostaglandin (PG) E, which is a species of endogenous pain-producing substance, whereas COX-1 acts as a house-keeping enzyme. Inhibiting both COX-1 and -2 simultaneously can have side effects such as gastrointestinal bleeding and renal dysfunction. Some polyphenols have been reported for its selective inhibiting activity toward COX-2 expression. Our study aimed to demonstrate the potential and mechanisms of TP as an anti-inflammation action without the side effects of COX-1 inhibition.Materials and methods: Free fatty acid-stimulated macrophage cell lines were employed to mimic macrophage behaviors during lifestyle-related diseases such as atherosclerosis and non-alcoholic steatohepatitis. Real-time polymerase chain reaction was used to detect expression of inflammatory cytokine mRNA. Griess assay was used to measure the production of nitric oxide (NO). ELISA was used to measure PG Eproduction. Molecular docking was adopted to analyze the interactions between compounds fromand COX-2.Results: TP significantly suppressed the production of NO production, blocked the mRNA expression of iNOS, and COX-2 in both cell lines, blocked the mRNA expression of TNF-, IL-1, IL-6, and PGEin the murine cell line. However, there was no inhibitory effect on COX-1. Molecular docking result indicated that the inhibitory effects of TP on COX-2 and PGEcould be attributed to acteoside, which is the main compound of TP that could bind to the catalytic zone of COX-2. After the interaction, catalytic ability of COX-2 is possibly inhibited, followed by which PGEproduction is attenuated. COX inhibitor screening assay showed TP as a selective inhibitor of COX-2 enzyme.Conclusion: The anti-inflammatory effects of TP can possibly regulate macrophages due to the targeted inhibition of COX-2 activity, without affecting COX-1 activity with other anti-inflammatory effects including suppression of iNOS and inflammatory cytokines. As such, TP is potentially useful in prevention and treatment of lifestyle-related disease by attenuating inflammation caused by macrophages infiltration.

Researcher Makes Controversial Allegation of Archaeological Fraud at Renowned Turkish Site "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

No one wants to be fooled by a fake, but everyone loves hearing about those who are.

Recently, in an interview with LiveScience, Swiss geoarchaeologist Eberhard Zangger alleged that the prominent British archaeologist James Mellaart forged artifacts from the famous site atalhyk, as well as numerous documents supposedly translated from Luwian, a written and spoken language in ancient Turkey.

Zangger claimed that, in a note found after his death, Mellaart encouraged colleagues to publish these translations and artifacts after his death and said that anyone following through with Mellaarts request was being duped and perpetrating archaeological fraud. I feel abused, Zangger told LiveScience. He said that Mellaart had no scruples when it came to harming other peoples careers.

These accusations are difficult to evaluate. Mellaart died in 2012, and Zangger, whose allegations have not appeared in a peer-reviewed scientific journal, is cited as the only source in the story.

Japans FSA Warns Binance to Comply with Licensing Requirements

Japans top securities regulator has issued a formal warning to cryptocurrency exchange Binance that it needs to comply with licensing requirements in order to continue operations.

The news, which the Financial Services Agency (FSA) published in a statement on Friday, March 23, 2018, confirms earlier rumors reported by news outlet Nikkei that an FSA warning was forthcoming, given the exchange was already operating in the country without a license.

Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao initially took to Twitter to deny those rumors, accusing Nikkei of irresponsible journalism. He stated Binance was in communication with the FSA. It does not make sense for JFSA to tell a newspaper before telling us, while we have an active dialog going on with them.

But after the FSA warning became public, he tweeted, We received a simple letter from JFSA about an hour ago. Our lawyers called JFSA immediately, and will find a solution. In an attempt to quell customer concerns, he later tweeted, No need to worry. Some negative news often turn out to be positive in the long term.

Binance, which is based in Hong Kong, had been expanding its operations into Japan, employing several staff in the country. At th...

Minima Muralia: A Collection of 15 Years of Murals by Street Artist Blu "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

The newly published book Minima Muralia condenses more than 200 larger-than-life murals painted by Blu (previously) into one 288-page collection. The compendium covers every piece made by the Italian street artist over the last 15 years, including backstage shots and unreleased works pulled from his archive. A special edition of the book has also been released, featuring a 32-page zine, two posters, and a specially-designed book casing. You can order both releases on Zooo Print & Press.

In addition to putting out this recent compilation of his works, Blu has also painted a new mural in the town of La Punta, just outside of Valencia, Spain.

Yahoo! Japan to Launch Cryptocurrency Exchange in 2019 "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Yahoo! Japan Corporation, a subsidiary of Yahoo! and SoftBank Group, is entering the cryptocurrency industry by launching an exchange in April 2019, according to Nikkei Asian Review.

Yahoo! Japan Acquires 40% of BitARG to Launch Exchange in 2019

In order to open a cryptocurrency exchange, Yahoo! Japan will start off by acquiring 40 percent of BitARG Exchange Tokyo, an FSA-approved exchange operating in Japan. The Financial Services Agency (FSA) was already notified about the investment plan.
Bit Arg Exchange Tokyo is one of the 16 cryptocurrency exchanges in Japan with an FSA license, issued in early December 2017. There are 16 other operators with pending licenses.
A full year after the acquisition of Bit ARG Exchange Tokyo next month, in April 2019, Yahoo! Japan plans to launch its own exchange, newly built but based on BitARGs system.
Yahoo! Japan will buy the BitARG shares, corresponding to 40 percent of capital, through Tokyos YJFX, a retail foreign exchange broker founded in 2003 and wholly owned by Yahoo! Japan Corporation.
The financial services firm will pay approximately 2 billion yen ($19 million) for the 40 percent stake in BitARG, made up of outstanding shares and newly issued stock. From April 2018 onwards, a number of YJFX executives and engineers will focus on the development of the new exchange system at the headquarters of BitARG.
The team will also be preparing the corporate governance structure as well as a customer management system, and internal controls.

Another Yahoo! Japan Corporation company will be in charge of additional investments to be made from January to March 2019 in preparation for the launch of the exchange in April 2019.

The market has been jittery as the Japanese financial watchdog, Financial Services Agency, is increasingly demanding after having failed to prevent the Coincheck hack in January 2018.

Now, the importance of registration with the FSA has become paramount. Yesterdays mini-crash on rumors that the FSA would order major exchange Binance to stop operations while awaiting a license is an example of the nervousness in the market.

Zhao Changpeng, founder of Binance, addressed yesterday what he called irresponsible journalism as the company immediately called the FSA to find a solution after receivi...

Ravencoin (RVN) Interest Keeps Growing Stronger "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

RavenCoin (RVN) seems to have appeared out of nowhere for many people and there are still quite a lot of miners that are not aware of this potentially interesting crypto coin. Ravencoin is being described as a use case specific blockchain designed to carry statements of truth about who owns what asset and there is still a low unknown about the project. The interest in RVN however keeps growing and more people are getting interested in it and are starting to mine it and as a result the network is growing. You can keep track of how things move on on the useful Ravencoin Statistics website and how the network is progressing over time. The recent announcement that the Ravencoin roadmap and accompanying paper will be published on April 3 have further helped to increase the interest as currently there is just a short White Paper regarding the new X16r algorithm used by the coin.

Up until recently Ravencoin (RVN) was not traded on any exchange and was moved only as OTC sales and that is one of the reasons why the coin remained widely unknown for a while after its initial launch. Recently the decentralized exchange Crypto Bridge has added trading of RVN and that has helped move things further and help miners get more interest as they could easily sell coins.

Communities Rally Against GMOs, GE Trees in New Zealand "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Communities Rally Against GMOs, GE Trees in New Zealand

GE Free Northland is encouraging the Northland Regional Council to place precautionary and prohibitive GE/GMO provisions in the new Regional Plan for Northland, to support local District Councils and Auckland Council in preventing any genetically engineered (genetically modified) organisms being trialled out of doors or used commercially.

The Proposed new Regional Plan for Northland currently fails to regulate or ban the outdoor use of GMOs, only mentioning concerns about outdoor use of GMOs in the Tangata whenua Policy section (D.1.1) and s32 analysis. There were 86 original submissions urging the NRC to control or ban outdoor use of GE/GMOs. The Proposed Regional Plan is now open for further submissions, and GE Free Northland is calling on Northland ratepayers and residents to make supportive submissions on the GMO issue by Monday 26 March at 3pm.

We need to ensure that Northland Regional Council adequately protects the region from the adverse impacts outdoor use of GMOs, including transgenic pollution, damage to existing GM free primary producers valuable enterprises, loss of income, and creation of invasive new super weeds. The NRC must include strong precautionary and prohibitive GMO provisions, policies, and objectives in the new Regional Plan for Northland, says Martin Robinson, spokesman, GE Free Northland.

We call on the Northland Regional Council to follow the lead of the other councils around New Zealand that have already adopted precautionary provisions and banned the outdoor release of GMOs via their local policy statements and plans. Auckland Council, Far North District Council, and Whangarei District Council have all prohibited the outdoor release of GMOs and made field trials a discretionary activity with performance standards regarding liability and the posting of bonds, the new Regional Plan for Northland needs to strongly support these excellent GMO plan changes, says Robinson.

GMOs threaten the economic sustainability of a wide range of agricultural and forestry activities that benefit from having GE-free status. This includes conventional, IPM and organic primary producers in the Northland region, including m...


Shocking Discovery in The World of Bitcoin Could Cause Serious Problems In the Future "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

A more recent discovery could mean some very negative things for Bitcoin itself and certain users of the bitcoin network. While this may be a bit confusing if you keep going it will all make sense.

For those who may not know, Bitcoin is a form of cryptocurrency that uses people who volunteer to use their computers to maintain the network, those who do this could be facing some backlash for liability depending on the content they possess. While those who merely own bitcoin and do not participate in the network will not be directly affected, it is important to be aware of this. Researchers have analyzed about 1,600 files on bitcoins blockchain and some of those files (a few hundred) depicted links to child pornography websites.

These findings come from researchers at the Aachen University and Goethe University Frankfurt. They presented these just about a month ago at the international conference on financial cryptography in Curacao. Now, depending on how you look at this it does seem to make being involved in this the same as possessing and distributing images of child abuse.

The team wrote as follows in their paper:

Our analysis shows that certain content, eg. illegal pornography, can render the mere possession of a blockchain illegal,

Since all blockchain data is downloaded and persistently stored by users, they are liable for any objectionable content added to the blockchain by others. Consequently, it would be illegal to participate in a blockchain-based [system] as soon as it contains illegal content.

While this wont completely ruin the system itself it is something that needs to be regulated in some form. While this is not something people are making a big deal out of now it will most likely be gone over time and time again in the future. It has been said that creating new blockchain designs could address this issue and prevent files of those kinds from being spread but at the moment we will have to wait and see where things go.

Christian Catalini, a professor and founder of MITs Cryptoeconomics Lab told WashingtonPost that these findings do not present a major problem at this time and that it is relatively hard for people to use it to post offensive content at the moment. What do you think about this? for more information please check out the video below.

OAKLAND   On March 9, 2018 the San Francisco Bay Area American Indian community gathered together for a memorial service honoring the life and legacy of Michael L. Smith who passed on to his next life on Feb. 14, 2018. He was 66 years old.  The memorial was held at Merritt College in Oakland, and organized by the Spencer family. Mike Smith was the Founder and Director of the American Indian Film Festival and the American Indian Film Institute. His film festival became the oldest and most prominent showcase in the world for Native American talent.

M.C. Michael Horse

The heart and core of his long running film organization was to change racist stereotypes of the American Indian in media and help all our tribes transition from oral to visual storytelling. Central to this vision was his work to train youth through AIFIs Tribal Touring Program, teaching reservation youth how film and produce their own stories.

For 42 years the American Indian Film Festival has been the first to present feature length films, documentaries, music videos as well as an Awards Ceremony honoring directors, producers, actors, actresses, musicians involved in Native American media. The annual Awards Ceremony provides a stage to show  talent in music, comedy, and storytelling from traditional indigenous performers to contemporary styles popular with todays urban and reservation communities.

Trumps NAFTA Renegotiation Seeks To Empower Toxic Food Industry "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

By Brandon TurbevilleNatural Blaze

After three decades of disastrous Free Trade policies that have seen American jobs shipped out the door, Mexican sweat shops pop up all across the country, and the loss of biodiversity and diversity of the food supply in Mexico, NAFTA is finally being looked at once again. With that second look, a tangled web of interests and perspectives has arisen that are difficult for the average American to unravel, especially given the fact that their media has done nothing but lie to them in regards to the effects of NAFTA on their own economy.

Corporate America and the financial sector are and have always been in favor of the agreement due to the fact that they are able to take advantage of cheap labor and weaker worker and environmental protections in order to maximize profits. Likewise, major international corporations like Monsanto have been able to move into Mexico and Canada, destroying the biodiversity and health of the people living there.

In addition, a host of wealthy oligarchical ideologues who wish to see one planet united under the banner of trade have long seen the NAFTA de...


Were taking steps to protect against future interference in our political conversation by state-sponsored propaganda campaigns "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"


Hi Tumblr,

Were all grappling with the influence that state-sponsored disinformation campaigns can have on our political conversationsand how wide-spread that interference turned out to be. So please take a moment to read this, think about it, and talk about it.

Last fall, we uncovered 84 Tumblr accounts linked to the Russian government through the Internet Research Agency, or IRA. These accounts were being used as part of a disinformation campaign leading up to the 2016 U.S. election. After uncovering the activity, we notified law enforcement, terminated the accounts, and deleted their original posts. Behind the scenes, we worked with the Department of Justice, and the information we provided helped indict 13 people who worked for the IRA.

Now that the investigations are done, we want to let you know how were going to help protect Tumblr in the future and what you can do to help.

Heres what we know about these accounts

The IRA employs more than 1,000 people who engage in electronic disinformation and propaganda campaigns around the world using phony social media accounts. Their goal is to sow division and discontent in the countries they target. What makes them so difficult to spot is that theyre not spambots. Theyre real people who get trained and paid to spread propaganda.

As far as we can tell, the IRA-linked accounts were only focused on spreading disinformation in the U.S., and they only posted organic content. We didnt find any indication that they ran ads.

Remember, the IRA and other state-sponsored disinformation campaigns play off our zero-sum politics. They want to drive a wedge between us so that we spend our time fighting with each other instead of building towards the future. Well be watching for signs of future activity, but the best defense is knowing how they operate and how to judge the content you see.

What were doing in response to the interference

First, well be emailing anyone who liked, reblogged, replied to, or followed an IRA-linked account with the list of usernames they engaged with.

Second, were going to start keeping a public record of user...

Brazil Only Has One Jackson Pollock on Public View, and Now Its Being Sold "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Jackson Pollock, No. 16 (1950) (image via Google Arts & Culture)

The Museum of Modern Art (MAM) in Rio de Janeiro announced on Sunday that it is selling the only Jackson Pollock painting currently on public view in Brazil. The museum expects the work, N 16 (1950), to sell for around $25 million, which would help the museum sustain itself for at least 30 years. This will be the first time a museum in Brazil has deaccessioned an artwork to pay off debt.

MAM currently has a deficit of 1.5 million reais (roughly $454,170), and because its a private institution, it does not receive any governmental assistance. According to the museums communications department, maintenance costs $1.8 million a year, more than the museums 2017 revenue of $1.2 million.

We hope the buyer will be Brazilian, and that they will keep the work at MAM or at another museum in the country, said MAM President Carlos Alberto Chateaubriand of the Pollock, which was donated to the museum by Nelson Rockefeller in 1954. However, given the high price of the painting, collectors are skeptical that a Brazilian buyer or museum will acquire it. If no Brazilian museums are interested, then MAM will approach auction houses such as Sothebys, Christies, and Phillips.

MAM says it chose to sell the painting because, for one thing, Pollock is not a Brazilian artist. The...

Spike Lee to Teach an Online Course on Filmmaking; Get Ready By Watching His List of 95 Essential Films "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

When Spike Lee makes a movie, people talk about it. People talked in 1986 when he made the black-and-white indie comedy She's Gotta Have It; they talked even more when he came out with Do the Right Thing a few years later; they talked, with sharply divided opinion, about his most recent picture, the crime-themed musical Chi-Raq; and they're already talking about his upcoming Black Klansman, and not just because of the title. Lee has managed to remain culturally and artistically relevant throughout a career of more than thirty years and counting, and his new online course at Masterclass just might let us in on how he's done it.

"When you're an independent filmmaker, and making films outside Hollywood, that's hard," says the long Brooklyn-based Lee in the trailer for the course above. "You have to pray on bended knee at the church of cinema." But even as an aspiring auteur with a pocket-change budget Lee remembers well when he "was a caterer, the producer, the director, the screenwriter, acted in it, and I was the first AD" on his first feature  you already possess "tools that can help you tell a story": heightening dynamic camerawork to heighten the emotions, for instance, or writing characters with strong beliefs to intensify the conflicts of the story. He used such techniques when he started out, and he still uses them today.

New NASA Study Solves Climate Mystery, Confirms Methane Spike Tied to Oil and Gas

From an Article by Sharon Kelly, DeSmogBlog, January 16, 2018

Over the past few years, natural gas has become the primary fuel that America uses to generate electricity, displacing the long-time king of fossil fuels, coal. In 2019, more than a third of Americas electrical supply will come from natural gas, with coal falling to a second-ranked 28 percent, the Energy Information Administration predicted this month, marking the growing ascendency of gas in the American power market.

But new peer-reviewed research adds to the growing evidence that the shift from coal to gas isnt necessarily good news for the climate.

A team led by scientists at NASAs Jet Propulsion Laboratory confirmed that the oil and gas industry is responsible for the largest share of the worlds rising methane emissionswhich are a major factor in climate changeand in the process the researchers resolved one of the mysteries that has plagued climate scientists over the past several years.

That mystery? Since 2006, methane emissions have been rising by about 25 teragrams (a unit of weight so large that NASA notes youd need more than 200,000 elephants to equal one teragram) every year. But when different researchers sought to pinpoint the sources of that methane, they ran into a problem.

If you added the growing amounts of methane pollution from oil and gas to the rising amount of methane measured from other sources, like microbes in wetlands and marshes, the totals came out too highexceeding the levels actually measured in the atmosphere. The numbers didnt add up.

It turns out, there was a third factor at play, one whose role was underestimated, NASAs new paper concludes, after reviewing satellite data, ground-level measurements and chemical analyses of the emissions from different sources.

A drop in the acreage burned in fires worldwide between 2006 and 2014 meant that methane from those fires went down far more than scientists had realized. Fire-related methane pollution dropped twice as much as previously...


How to Recognize Good Light in Street Photography "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Heres an 11-minute video from photographer Sean Tucker that looks at how you can identify good light in street photography.

As part of a series of videos, Tucker shows how he exposes and composes an image based on the light that is afforded to him. Living in London, UK, Tucker explains that there is plenty of steel and glass in the streets around him. This casts light in various forms and shapes around throughout the day, offering a variety of different textures and patterns.

Tucker explains his thought process when looking at a particular scene, showing exactly what hes looking for before pressing the shutter.

Interestingly, Tucker uses a smartphone app to process his images rather than a more traditional workflow that involves a desktop computer. Ultimately, the image comes out as a contrasty black and white scene.

If there isnt really much to do with the color that adds [to the image], then Ill go black and white, says Tucker.

Public annoyed at finally having to buy the Big Issue "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Members of the public were put in an awkward situation last week of having to buy The Big Issue magazine when Tommy, who sells the mag outside the Cafe Nero, started accepting card payments.  Used to telling themselves that theyd buy the magazine if only they had the money on them, Tommy admitted that some of his customers were a little confused to begin with: One customer kept insisting hed left his wallet with his card in it at home. I kept pointing out to him his wallet was in his hand, but he was having none of it.

Frustratingly, Tommy has also starting to offer a direct debit option, for those who deliberately cross the road to avoid him.  Said Tommy: Basically Ill accept any legal tender, from any source, in any format Im the homeless equivalent of the Tory Party.

Meet the Leadership: Alicea Acevedo, ICAN of Tallahassee "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

ICAN is excited to announce Alicea Acevedo as our newest Chapter Leader!

I have very strong feelings about providers giving out incomplete and misleading information. Women can make their own decisions but should have correct and complete information. ~ Alicea Acevedo, ICAN of Tallahassee

Please introduce yourself to ICAN:

I am married with two daughters, 3 and 5. We own a restaurant and I do all the administrative/accounting work from home for it while my husband runs it there day to day. I have a BA in Communications from the University of South Florida. I love to read and would do it all day if I could! I am a huge Buffalo Bills fan and I enjoy attending concerts.

What led you to join ICAN?

The woman who encapsulated my placenta after my cesarean knew what a hard time I was having and referred me to our local chapter one day after my daughter was born. I went to the very next meeting.

How do you share ICAN as an organization with others?

Mainly that it exists and that we should not be considered controversial in any way. There is nothing controversial about education, advocacy, and support.

Where will you be serving families through ICAN?

ICAN of Tallahassee we serve the Florida panhandle. The largest OB practice in our city has a VBAC ban. They are the most well-known practice here and I think this sends a bad message....

Coxsackievirus B4-contaminated drinking water or treated sewage may play a role as a causative agent of T1D in children. "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

PMID:  Food Environ Virol. 2018 Mar ;10(1):89-98. Epub 2017 Oct 11. PMID: 29022248 Abstract Title:  Coxsackievirus B4 as a Causative Agent of Diabetes Mellitus Type 1: Is There a Role of Inefficiently Treated Drinking Water and Sewage in Virus Spreading? Abstract:  This study proposed to detect the enterovirus (EV) infection in children with type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1D) and to assess the role of insufficiently treated water and sewage as sources of viral spreading. Three hundred and eighty-two serum specimens of children with T1D, one hundred serum specimens of children who did not suffer from T1D as control, and forty-eight water and sewage samples were screened for EV RNA using nested RT-PCR. The number of genome copies and infectious units of EVs in raw and treated sewage and water samples were investigated using real-time (RT)-PCR and plaque assay, respectively. T1D markers [Fasting blood glucose (FBG), HbA1c, and C-peptide], in addition to anti-Coxsackie A&B viruses (CVs A&B) IgG, were measured in control, T1D-negative EV (T1D-EV), and T1D-positive EV (T1D-EV) children specimens. The prevalence of EV genome was significantly higher in diabetic children (26.2%, 100 out of 382) than the control children (0%, 0 out of 100). FBG and HbA1c in T1D-EVand T1D-EVchildren specimens were significantly higher than those in the control group, while c-peptide in T1D-EVand T1D-EVchildren specimens was significantly lower than that in the control (n = 100; p

A New Center in the Mile-High City Elevates Womens Contributions to Colorado History "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Opening ceremony at the Center for Colorado Womens History with Director Jillian Allison (all photos courtesy the Center for Colorado Womens History unless otherwise noted)

DENVER A historic Italian-style home in Denver, Colorado will house a new center celebrating women who have contributed to the states past and present. The Center for Colorado Womens History, which opened on March 21, is a helpful response to visitor demand for untold stories of local women. Already, it has demonstrated an agile and unconventional strategy driven by outreach and public collaboration.

The Center for Colorado Womens History, located within the Byers-Evans House Museum, is in the cultural and historic heart of Denver. Nestled among the Clyfford Still Museum, Denver Art Museum, and Denver Public Library, the building was constructed in 1883 by William N. Byers, who was the founder and editor of Denvers first newspaper, the Rocky Mountain News. Six years later, the home was purchased by William Evans, the son of territorial governor John Evans.

John Evans spurred growth in the state by spearheading Colorados first railroad, and his daughter Ann Evans became a powerful force in Denvers arts and cultural space. She was a member of the Artists Club, which eventually became the Denver Art Museum. In the late 1920s, Ann Evans established the Denver Artists Guild and was a founding member of the Central City Opera, as well as the first woman president of the Denver Public Library. Denver will become, through the use of its fine schools, its art museum and the Red Rocks Amphitheater and the Central City Opera House, the cultural center of the entire region, she said.

Why Everyone Is Wrong About Ford PCM and Why You Absolutely Must View This Document Immediately "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

The Fundamentals of Ford PCM Revealed

Automated transmission equipped trucks will expect a throttle position sensor. A great deal of vehicles have software in their PCMs that youre able to upgrade. The simplest method is to let the IDS self ID the car. Virtually all new vehicles these days are now flash programmable. Its possible that on a very low speed collision, vehicle speed data might be on the module.

If it is a small hard, then utilize carburetor cleaner and a toothbrush or ear cleaning bud to wash the region of the valve (the two identical rectangular blocks), and check to determine whether the shaft is simple to rotate. Even if you purchase everything we sell, you should come up with a couple parts by yourself, like an exhaust down pipe (usually a Dodge down pipe may be very good start), and intercooler tubes (again Dodge stuff may be fantastic start). Most PCV valves include a spring-loaded device. In the event the sensor is faulty, it might be intermittent. Reprogram utilizing the PMI function to make sure that engine and transmission calibrations are updated to the newest level simultaneously.

Our modules may not make your Ford dealer happy as a result of the cash you save, they will cause you to get happy. When a module like a PCM is reprogrammed, its not removed from the car or truck. Fortunately, it doesnt take much to look at the system. If you arent knowledgeable about the PCV system in your car or truck, or cant locate the valve, purchase the service manual for your specific vehicle make and model from a local auto parts store. More power is simply a few electrons away.

The 5-Minute Rule for Ford PCM

Simply plug in the device and youve got the choice of tuning your Mustang in many ways. Youre then asked to select from a list of vehicles to communicate with. The number that has to be matched can be located on the PCMs label sticker. A greater number is a revised version, and so long as the other characters match, you ought to be in good form. The range of times the VID block might be reconfigured is constrained. The most significant thing is to make certain that you have the proper number of the PCM unit on you.

The Appeal of Ford PCM

The code is going to be on a little white sticker. It is displayed in a manner that is not plain English. Other times, it may only indicate a problem circuit and thus extensive diagnostic procedures may be required. If you discover that the DTC lists contain some codes which dont apply to the specif...

SDG 6: Clean water and sanitation an amazing opportunity for India "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Sustainable Development Goal 6, Clean water and sanitation is at the very core of sustainable development, critical to the survival of people and the planet. The issues of health and wellness are closely related to adequate water supply and functional sanitation systems. This Goal addresses not only the issues related to drinking water, sanitation, and hygiene but also the quality and sustainability of water resources worldwide.

India having one-sixth of the worlds population, place equal access to essential health, clean water, and sanitation services in top priority. In October 2014 Swachh Bharat Abhiyan (Clean India Mission) was launched by the Prime Minister of India under the Flagship scheme of the Government of India.

Clean drinking water

76% Indian habitations have full coverage, i.e. these habitations get more than 40 liters per capita per day. However, some habitations in India have water quality issues and the two most critical water quality issues are arsenic and fluoride contaminations. Piped water supply coverage in India is over 50% and in public spots. The objective is to have piped water supply in 90% of habitations by 2022 including 80% household coverage. Today household connections are only 15% so it is an ambitious target to attain. Major issues which confront here are groundwater and source sustainability.

Steps which can be taken to conserve water and to be able to meet future demands:

  • Lifeline plus drinking water as a concept needs to be incorporated to create sustainable drinking water. Smart cities need to have this principle embedded in their very conceptualization.
  • Water Education, i.e. an integrated water management approach in education.
  • Creating data and interlinking dataset from different government departments is essential if the SDG goals need to be attained.
  • Managing water demand i.e. rationalization and prioritization of net water demanded.
  • Promoting water audit and incentivize water conservation.

Hygiene and Sanitation:  Sanitation no longer lacks political determination. Sanitation has been an integral part of the Prime Ministers election campaign and addresses to the nation. While working towards the sanitation-related targets, it is important to focus on not only numbers but usage. Sanitation is important, why?

  • An account estimates that sanitation saves about 200000 lives a year of chi...

Abstract:  The goal of this study was to demonstrate the effect of radiotherapy (RT) on nasal mucosa in rats and to evaluate the radioprotective effects of the topical application of black seed oil (Nigella sativa [NS]) to treat acute radiation-induced nasal mucositis.A total of 18 rats were randomized into 3 groups, with 6 animals per group. The rats in group 1 were topically administered saline in the nasal cavity after sham irradiation. Group 2 received saline at the same dose after irradiation. Group 3 was given NS after irradiation. The rats in groups 2 and 3 were irradiated with a single dose of 40 Gy to the nasal and paranasal area. Only one drop of saline (0.05 mL) was applied to each nostril in the first, second, and third days after RT in groups 1 and 2. One drop of cold press NS (0.05 mL) was applied to each nostril in group 3. Fourteen days after irradiation, the nasal mucosal tissues were excised for histopathological evaluation. Vascular dilatation, inflammatory cell infiltration, superficial erosion, and formation of exudates were classified according to the severity.No evidence of mucositis was observed in group 1. Of all the parameters the only statistically significant difference between groups 2 and 3 were observed for"superficial erosion' (P

Supercharge your workflow with profiles and arrangements "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

If youve ever had to manage multiple projects, keeping up with the command line can be cumbersome. Here are a couple of hot tips on how juggle multiple projects that will save you a ton of time.

If youre using the regular Mac Terminal, I highly recommend switching over to iTerm2 (its just better). More on why in a bit.

SSH Aliases

Sometimes, you need to SSH into a server somewhere. Sometimes you have twenty different servers youd like to SSH into. Remembering where they live and what theyre called can be a pain.

To save time, create aliases for each server in under a minute. Heres how:

// Open a terminal window
nano ~/.ssh/config
// Fill in the following to create an alias
Identity file ~/.ssh/
//Exit and save the file
ctrl + x
// Now instead of doing this to connect
ssh -i "" @
// You can do this
ssh name-you-assigned

iTerm2 Profiles and Arrangements

Profiles are great and have changed my daily workflow. Sometimes your terminal looks like this:

Which one did I want again? 

The problem is, you dont know which window you want to click. You also dont want to close out windows, because then youll have to open a new window, navigate back to the correct directory, and remember the copy pasta to make it go.

With profiles and window arrangements, you dont have to worry about any of that.

Theres a quick video walk through below if you get lost on any of these steps.

A profile enables you to open a new command line window in a certain directory and run commands automatically. Lets make one!

First, close all open command line windows in iTerm, and start with a new command line window. Next, youll want to navigate to Profiles in the Menubar and click Open Profiles

You should see something like this

Now click Edit Profiles which should bring you here:

Gamebyrd and Mongod are some profiles I made so dont worry if you dont see them

Neuroprotective effect of gold nanoparticles composites in Parkinson's disease model. "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

PMID:  Nanomedicine. 2018 Feb 21. Epub 2018 Feb 21. PMID: 29474924 Abstract Title:  Neuroprotective effect of gold nanoparticles composites in Parkinson's disease model. Abstract:  Parkinson's disease (PD) is second most common neurodegenerative disorder worldwide. Although drugs and surgery can relieve the symptoms of PD, these therapies are incapable of fundamentally treating the disease. For PD patients, over-expression of-synuclein (SNCA) leads to the death of dopaminergic neurons. This process can be prevented by suppressing SNCA over-expression through RNA interference. Here, we successfully synthesized gold nanoparticles (GNP) composites (CTS@GNP-pDNA-NGF) via the combination of electrostatic adsorption and photochemical immobilization, which could load plasmid DNA (pDNA) and target specific cell types. GNP was transfected into cells via endocytosis to inhibiting the apoptosis of PC12 cells and dopaminergic neurons. Simultaneously, GNP composites are also used in PD models in vivo, and it can successfullycross the blood-brain barrier by contents of GNP in the mice brain. In general, all the works demonstrated that GNP composites have good therapeutic effects for PD models in vitro and in vivo.

The Link between Vaccines and Autoimmune Disease "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

By the World Mercury Project Team

Autoimmune diseases have become increasingly common in the United States and other high-income countries over the past several decades and now affect an estimated 5%-10% of the population in those countries. The broad category of autoimmune disease comprises over 100 different rheumatic, endocrinological, gastrointestinal and neurological conditions that ensue when the bodys immune responses get misdirected against itself. Researchers generally agree that environmental factors (including drugs and chemicals) are strongly to blame for the rise in autoimmune disorders, possibly in conjunction with genetic and epigenetic influencesand studies dating back to the mid-1990s indicate that vaccines, with their unique configuration of viral or bacterial antigens and adjuvants, are a biologically plausible trigger.

The pathogenic hallmark of autoimmune disease is the production of proteins called autoantibodies, whereby the immune system mistakenly attacks the bodys own organs, tissues and cells instead of fighting external pathogens. Vaccines can prompt autoantibody production through a mechanism called molecular mimicry. As explained by Isra...

Before & After: A 1926 Michigan Home Gets A Modern Refresh "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Jenna Cook and Brandon Curry are a couple that know what they want and will make the efforts to make it happen. Theyre also not afraid, or unfamiliar, with living in a construction zone on the road to restoration and renovations. Brandon is a realtor for Sothebys and Jenna is pursuing her degree to become an elementary school teacher. Jenna and Brandon moved into their 1,800-square-foot, 1926 house in Ferndale, MI  with their beloved cat, Richard, in tow the day it closed just over a year ago. Since then, theyve been working on modernizing their nearly 100-year-old home while also highlighting its traditional charm, and are now just nearly done.

Last on the list is turning their basement into a home theater, craft room, and laundry room. Once the basement is wrapped up, theyll finish the house by remodeling the upstairs bathroom. With the exception of the flooring and installing new windows, theyve done nearly all of the interior work themselves. However, its not all work and no play for this couple in their downtime (when hes not soaking in epsom salts to recover from a strenuous house project) Brandon can be found fixing up his vintage Land Rovers, or serenading Jenna with songs and interpretive dance as his heart inspires him. Jenna loves interior design, baking, traveling, and reading the last of which makes their charming little library all the more perfect.

The act of creating a home together, and living through the process of their renovations, has brought Brandon and Jenna closer and given them a deeper respect for one another. Follow along to get the nitty gritty on the transformations theyve brought their house through over the last year. Rebekah

Current State Of Health Care Data

Health records around the world are currently stored by a multitude of medical institutions and data companies, and while this information is sometimes shared, it is limited and problematic. Issues regarding privacy and accessibility make combining and analyzing data from multiple sources difficult. As a result, vital information that could contribute to health research greatly lies dormant.

Betrayal: How the REPUBLICANS Are Gutting the Second Amendment "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

This article was originally published by Daisy Luther at The Organic Prepper

Everyone likes to blame the Democrats for gun control, but heres a news flash: those of us who fervently believe in the Second Amendment are actually being betrayed by members of the Republican party who are in Congress right now. Bills on the table right now would gut our right to bear arms, and the Congress is controlled by Republicans.

The spending bill that Congress hopes to pass is more than 2200 pages, according to Senator Rand Paul, who was outraged at being given less than a day to read the entire bill. Senator Paul live-tweeted his reading of the bill last night, and its a pretty safe bet that nobody else in Congress spent the evening reading it before they vote today.

How the spending bill affects our Second Amendment rights

In this budget bill are some insidious things that affect our Second Amendment rights.

Incredible Kingfisher Photo Is the Result of 6 Months of Hard Work, No Photoshop Necessary "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Kingfisher Diving Highspeed Photography by Mario Cea

Spanish wildlife photographer Mario Cea is known for his incredible bird photography. Using slow shutter speeds and artificial light, he's able to capture feathered creatures in unexpected, artistic moments. Regularly winning international photography competitions, Cea's stunning photo of a kingfisher diving into a pond won the People's Choice Award at the 2016 Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition and was recently shortlisted for the Bird Photographer of the Year Awards.

With over 25 years experience as a wildlife photographer, Cea is an expert at techniques that allow him to make this magic happen in the field. Through hard work and perseverance, the expert wildlife photographer was able to bring his artistic vision to life. In fact, The blue trail is the fruit of 6 months of work and 2,000 shots in order to obtain this perfect result.

So just how did Cea manage to obtain the streaking effect as the kingfisher touched down in the water? This image DOES NOT USE PHOTOSHOP. It is made only with photographic techniques, Cea tells My Modern Met. The image was taken with a slow shutter speed of 1/15s, combined with continuous light to capture the wake left by the bird in its path, with a flash to freeze the flight. When the exposure begins, the continuous light of a lantern is on and the flashes are fired at the second curtain, just when the exposure ends. Some people ask me, Why doesn't the wake appear in the reflection?' The answer is simplethe wake is only visible when the background is dark enough.

There you have it, no special post-production tricks, just knowledge of equipment and hard work to get the perfect photo. For Cea, it's all worth it in order to get across his creative point of view and draw in the viewer. He hopes, that through his photography, people will not only gain a greater appreciation and respect for wildlife, but also understand the work and effort that photographers go through to capture stunning images of birds in nature.
